Safe Environment Training

All volunteers must complete the Archdiocesan Safe Environment Training and undergo a background check BEFORE you begin interacting with youth. 

The Archdiocese of Atlanta is committed to helping children and young people learn and grow in a healthy and safe environment. OLA Church and Schools comply with archdiocesan safe environment policies and procedures.

The Safe Environment training for Adults of the Archdiocese of Atlanta includes training in how to recognize, prevent, and report abuse. All employees, and volunteers who regularly work with minors, receive this initial training, as well as ongoing training and background screening.


The Code of Conduct, Sexual Abuse Policy, Ministerial Standards for Clergy, Educators and all  Working with Children and Vulnerable Individuals, Social Media Policy as well as the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People are available at the diocesan website at

An overview of the children’s training, parent guide, and lesson plans are also available on the diocesan website.
