Required Volunteer Information/Safe Environment

Volunteer Safe Environment Requirements
The Archdiocese of Atlanta requires that all adult volunteers (18 years old or older) working with
children, youth, and/or vulnerable individuals must complete the Safe Environment training (VIRTUS)
and undergo a background screening before they start volunteering. As an adult volunteer, you should fill out the paperwork found at the Archdiocese of Atlanta website and return it to the head of the Ministry in which you are involved.

In addition, volunteers must be familiar with the Reporting Child Abuse Guidelines. To view these
guidelines, CLICK HERE.

Volunteers who are 13 years old or older should complete the Volunteer Application for Minors with their parent’s permission, and the School Reference for Minors form.  Home schooled minors must provide three references (non-family members).

If you have any questions, please contact Kathie Torrance in the parish office. 770-394-3896, ext. 225.
