YOUTH PROTECTION REQUIREMENTS
The Supreme Council has instituted a program called the Knights of Columbus Safe Environment Program.
This online program, along with a formal background check, is designed to teach all Grand Knights, Circle Leaders, and those who are in direct contact with young people in Knights of Columbus sponsored activities/organizations the signs of abuse and what we as Knights should do to provide our youth with a safe and supporting environment.
The online program Can be completed in as little as one hour. Furthermore, there is no formal meetings to attend. Those completing the program are certified for a period of two years.
The Safe Environment Training and subsequent background check is in addition to any checks performed by the diocese or scouting organizations. There is no cost for these checks to the council or individual.
