ADW Child Protection Program

The Archdiocese of Washington is committed to keeping children safe and to bringing healing to those harmed. You are invited to learn more here 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.

Protecting God’s Children is the mandatory child protection training for all Archdiocese of Washington employees and volunteers who have substantial contact with children.
