In partnership with Praesidium, an organization that has worked to provide knowledge and tools that safeguard against sexual predators for more than 20 years, the Order continues its strong tradition of maintaining the highest standards regarding the protection of young people. Through this partnership, the Order provides youth leaders with access to the most up-to-date resources to keep children safe, including Praesidium’s Armatus® online training, background screenings and an exclusive hotline to report child safety concerns (1-844-KOFC-SAFE (844-563-2723)).
