Empowering God’s Children®

For Children and Youth

A group of happy kids.The Empowering God’s Children® Program is for children and youth, Kindergarten through grade 12, to teach them about boundaries, how to recognize boundary violations, how to respond to persons who violate their boundaries, and how to report such violations to parents, family members, and other trusted adults. The sessions are taught in the Catholic schools, in parish religious education classes, and in youth ministry sessions. Empowering God’s Children® is a prerequisite to applying for Teen Leader Training.

Parents who opt out to having their children attend the Empowering God’s Children® sessions at school, religious education class or in youth ministry are strongly urged to review the age/grade appropriate curriculum with their children in the home. Information and the same curriculum with handouts and interactive activities that are used by the group facilitators are available through your Catholic school, parish catechetical leaders and parish Safe Environment Coordinators.
