Safe Environment Policy for Children

in the Diocese of Buffalo

(Content taken from the Diocese of Buffalo Website)

Mandated Curriculum for Children & Teens

All parishes and Catholic schools are required to provide age-appropriate training to children on the topic of sexual abuse awareness. The Diocese of Buffalo has provided sample lesson plans for your use and adaptation. These samples provide the age-appropriate learning goal, although teachers may use other strategies.

Here are some Sample Lesson Plans taken from our Diocesan website. Additionally, here is some information from the Grand Island Diocese that is helpful: Child Youth Education and from the Diocese of Albany: Grades K-2 and Grades 3-5.

Below are some video clips which could be utilized within classroom settings as well. Please preview before showing to children:
