VIRTUS

All adults working with youth must complete VIRTUS training. To learn more about VIRTUS visit their website.

Click here to view all training sessions in the Diocese of New Ulm.

The VIRTUS session consists of a presentation of printed materials, videos and group discussion. Among other things, VIRTUS attendees will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms that indicate a child is being abused or exploited in some way, environmental factors to be aware of in the physical space of the parish or school, how abusers operate and things parents can do to help educate their children about how to respond to inappropriate behavior toward them.
