A diverse group of 6 youth ministers or pastoral assistants from Churches in Regina met this morning to learn about organizing youth programs. The interactive workshop discussed topics such as abuse disclosures to registration forms to medication documentation. The parish representatives deal with a wide range of youth and activities. on an ongoing basis. It was exciting to see the numbers involved and the types of programs offered. Answers were provided to questions regarding specific sites. We had planned for 90 minutes but the questions and interest kept us engaged for 120 minutes. Hopefully these parishes are now comfortable with the processes. We are also available to assist with the training of the volunteers in the parishes.
The awareness of these individuals strenghthens the protection we can offer our youth and our volunteers.
Thank you for donating a morning of your time to the safety of our youth.
I hope we started to develop strong relationships with these communities and the communities with each other.
If you would like us to offer a workshop in your parish/area, just call us.
