Safe Environment Policies
The Knights of Columbus continually strives to provide a safe environment for all young people participating in Knights of Columbus-sponsored youth activities. With this in mind, the Order’s Board of Directors recently enacted the following policy:
VOTED, that all Knights of Columbus-sponsored youth activities shall require the presence of at least one member, typically the Council’s Youth Director, who has been screened and trained through the Knights of Columbus Safe Environment Program. As it is the policy of the Knights of Columbus that all council Youth Directors are required to be screened and trained in accordance with the Knights of Columbus Safe Environment Program, it is expected that the council Youth Director be present at all such council-sponsored youth activities. Council Youth Directors and/or other members screened and trained in accordance with the Knights of Columbus Safe Environment Program, in consultation with their Grand Knight, shall ensure that all Knights of Columbus safe environment policies and procedures are observed at all Knights of Columbus sponsored youth activities.

Questions regarding the status of your Council Youth Director or any youth leader in your council relative to the Knights of Columbus Safe Environment Program may be directed to the Office of Youth Protection at 203-800-4940 or email@example.com.
