Virtus Training – Thursday, 9/26 @ 6:30PM – Dammann Hall (school gym) – The Diocese of Albany is committed to providing a “safe environment” for everyone, especially children. We believe in education that raises awareness of sexual abuse that identifies the signs of sexual abuse, that explains how to control access to our children and vulnerable adults and that encourages responsible reporting of abuse. This information is critical as we go forward into the future. We have chosen the Virtus program to achieve these goals.
All employees of the Diocese and all volunteers who have contact with children must attend the program as a condition of employment or service.
Many Virtus presentations have been scheduled for the coming months and new sessions are added regularly. To view the schedule of Virtus sessions and to register for a session on-line, please visit https://www.virtusonline.org/virtus/reg_list.cfm?theme=0. There has been a Virtus Training scheduled at SJS on Thursday, September 26th at 6:30pm in Damman Hall (school gym). You are encouraged to pre-register using the link above. Please call the school office with any questions (518)283-0333.
