The CYO is committed to providing a ministry of information that helps bring youth to their full human potential. The CYO provides opportunities for young people to develop strong moral character, self-esteem and leadership qualities through activities of a social, educational, recreational and athletic nature.
ALL CYO VOLUNTEERS AND PAID STAFF ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN - SAFE ENVIRONMENT TRAINING
The Archdiocese of Indianapolis requires that everyone who has regular contact with children in church ministry must participate in a safe environment training program called Safe and Sacred. Volunteers must also sign a Code of Conduct.
This requirement is part of the Archdiocese efforts in providing a safe environment for the children who participate in all of the various ministries of the church.
The Safe and Sacred program is completed online. http://www.safeandsacred-archindy.org. Submit a copy of your certificate and completion to the parish or school office. A background check must also be done. The cost for that is $7.00.
If you have any questions about this policy please contact Harry Plummer, Office of Catholic Education and Faith Formation at 1-800-382-9836 x 7325 or (317) 236-7325.
