Initial, Protecting God’s Children for Adults (PGC)

Renewal, Keeping the Promise Alive for Adults (KPA)
Keeping the Promise Alive for Adults (KPA), is a renewal course that can be taken after you have successfully taken the Initial Protecting God’s Children for Adults (PGC). This session normally lasts around 2 hours and requires a new Code of Conduct Acknowledgement to be signed. As with PGC, this certification also expires every 2 years. Background checks are taken every 5 years.

This training is for any teen that would like to volunteer for any event or ministry in our parish. It is for ages 13-17. The session usually lasts for 3 hours. Parent signature required. Certification expires after 3 years.
