Protection of Children and Youth

Protection of Children and Youth

As a part of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, we are committed to protecting children and youth.  The archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis provides the following list of practices. Academy of Holy Angels fulfills this commitment with the following:

  • Recruit and screen volunteers and employees
  • Track the Essential 3 for all volunteers and employees
  • Host VIRTUS safe environment training sessions
  • Ensure that all events at AHA follow policies and best practices for the safety of children and youth
  • Share safe environment information with parents, parishioners and others
  • Conduct and track personal safety lessons for children and youth
  • Report annually to OPCY regarding compliance with the Essential 3 and children and youth safety lesson requirements

Depending on a volunteer's role, they may need to complete the Essential 3 that are the Archdiocesan requirements of the Safe Environment Training. We'll need them to read and sign the Code of Conduct, complete a background check, and attend Virtus Training. They should be in contact with Becky Egan, Human Resources/Site Coordinator with any questions, began@ahastars.org. AHA annually hosts Virtus training sessions conducted by our Virtus facilitator, Ann McComas-Bussa.

Resources

If you suspect abuse, your first call should be to law enforcement or child protection officials where the suspected abuse occurred. A list of regularly updated county child protection phone numbers is available on the Minnesota Department of Human Services website.
