Office of Child and Youth Protection & Safe Environment

The Archdiocese of Washington is committed to keeping children safe and to bringing healing to those harmed. We invite you to learn more about our child protection policy, to sign up for background checks and training if you are seeking to work or volunteer with young people in the archdiocese, and, perhaps most importantly, if you have been a victim of child sexual abuse, to contact the Office of Child and Youth Protection & Safe Environment, so you may get the assistance you need.
