Join McKenzie Knill, Director of Children, Youth, and Young Adult Formation, for one of five sessions in which participants will be trained to lead and facilitate the Safe Church, Safe Communities sessions for their local community.
Our hope is that each region will have several leaders trained and available to facilitate Safe Church, Safe Communities, both in online and in-person settings in addition to the existing resources for self-directed training via the Safe Church website.
The one-session, 2.5 hour training will be offered five times over the coming winter and spring. Our content includes an overview of the various sessions within the revised Safe Church, Safe Communities curriculum, a deep dive into our bi-diocesan Safe Church policy, and resources for facilitation.
Please see below for specific dates, times, and registration links.
