The Archdiocese of San Francisco appreciates your willingness to help children who are younger than you. We have created these Standards of Conduct because we want our actions to match our faith; we want you to respect all people, from the adults in your life to the children who look up to you; and we want to make sure that you are treated with the respect that you deserve. There are conditions for this privilege of working with young people.
Background evaluations are not done on minors (those under 18 years of age) who work with minors. It is required that minors working with minors: (1) are supervised at all times by a fully compliant adult; and (2) complete all the Youth Safety grade-level courses up to their current grade.
We also ask that you observe the following “do’s” and “don’ts”:
- Respect the adults and children with whom you interact
- Protect and care for all children
