Safe Environment Training

Child, Youth and Adult Protection


 

To report a concern please contact Bob Fontaine at BFontaine@RCDB.org or (208) 350-7555.

 


  

The Diocese of Boise, in compliance with the U.S. Bishops’ “Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People”, has established training programs for children, youth, parents, volunteers who work with youth, and employees.

 

All programs received an evaluation through CARES (Children at Risk Evaluation Services) with a report provided to the Diocesan Review Board for the Sexual Abuse of Minors at its August 8, 2008, meeting.  The evaluation noted that all videos and program materials had been reviewed and that the current program contained all of the essential information needed for instruction for minors and adults.

 

Recommendations noted a need for video instruction in Spanish and needs for updating some of the older videos.  In addition, it was recommended that the separate programs for volunteers and employees be combined.  The evaluation also noted that those who do the training need to keep current with additional information. 

 

The Diocese has 66 trainers spread throughout all parts of the Gem State  providing instruction to employees and volunteers.  Many of those same trainers instruct children and youth along with others who instruct only children and youth in the area of safe environment.
