VIRTUS: Protecting God's Children

All volunteers who work with youth, and all diocesan employees, are required to attend a VIRTUS session before starting their work. VIRTUS is a 3 hour child sexual abuse awareness training that teaches adults to create safe environments and to recognize and report any abuse that may occur.

Field trip drivers (regardless of whether they are only driving their own child) and those attending class parties (regardless of whether they are helping with the party) are required to attend VIRTUS.

Training sessions are held at SEAS on the 2nd Tuesday of every 3rd month (11/13/18, 2/12/19, etc.) at 6:30PM. Other training locations and dates can be found at www.virtus.org. Simply click the "First-Time Registrant" button, then the "View a list of sessions" link, and then choose Wichita, KS (Diocese) as your organization.
