Updated on Jan. 24: The North American Division is excited to be launching a new child protection program. They will no longer be using Shield the Vulnerable for training and background checks. They have partnered with Verified Volunteers to provide web-based training and screening for both employees and volunteers across all conferences in the North American Division. The North American Division is also considering renaming this program. This information will be shared once a new name has been decided.
Only NEW VOLUNTEERS and NEW EMPLOYEES will need to register and complete the required training and background check. Registration and the required training is available in English and Spanish. In the next few weeks data from Shield the Vulnerable will be merged into this new system. Once this is available we will begin the process of adding existing church and school administrators as well as all other volunteers and employees to the system. Thank you for your patience as we go through this transition.

The safety of our children is a serious issue that each of us, as employees and lay leaders, need to embrace. The conference offers training sessions throughout the year, which are listed below.
