The Bishops of the United States have committed to the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, which calls for on-going “safe-environment” programs. The Diocese of Brooklyn has chosen the VIRTUS program as an effective vehicle for Awareness Training. All persons who have direct contact with children, whether professional or volunteer are expected to participate in an Awareness Training Program.
The VIRTUS program is the only acceptable Awareness Training Program for the Diocese of Brooklyn Schools.
