Safe Environment Coordinator
The archdiocese has identified Teaching Touching Safety as its program for children. Teaching Touching Safety was developed by the same people who developed Virtus.
The strong points of this program are that it is age-appropriate, or geared to the different grade levels of children. Also, it is taught by teachers who know the readiness level of the children in their class-room. In addition, parents are able to opt out of the program. Nothing is taught to their children unless they approve.
Teaching Touching Safety also includes an educational component for parents.
Teaching Touching Safety is a safe environment program that speaks to children at various grade levels in an effort to keep them safe from abuse.
