Each elementary school, high school, religious education program, confirmation program, and youth ministry program must annually offer the Archdiocese of Los Angeles "Empowering God's Children and Young People Safety Program." The program includes home-based materials for parents/guardians to help them understand and support their children's education regarding child sexual abuse prevention.
All junior high and high school students should recognize that while they are engaged in service or activities that involve children or youth, they are role models who are called to treat each child or youth with respect and care.
Student workers and volunteers must read and sign the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Boundary Guidelines and Code of Conduct for Middle and High School Youth Working or Volunteering with Children or Youth. This document applies when students or youth hold specific leadership roles in ministerial service (including parishes and schools) and not to interactions with each other as fellow students or family or friends.
