The Virtus program is a specifically Catholic program used by the entire Diocese of Toledo which is designed to empower, protect and educate youth as well as those who care and work with them regarding sexual abuse. By educating our children and teaching them ways to be safe at all times as well as educating those who work with them to be able to identify signs of abuse, we can stop abuse before it begins. All of our volunteers at St. Charles who works directly with our youth must provide references, participate in Virtus Online for proper certification as well as go through a background check. We require at least 2 deep leadership at all times for any function and maintain visual contact of another adult in cases of one on one redirection.
