Youth Protection and Clearances


The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has established a statute that requires all individuals working with children as either employees or volunteers to obtain and submit certain clearances and complete PA-required online training. In addition, the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown requires that all OLVCS employees and volunteers submit Diocesean forms and complete the Diocean Youth Protection online course. These requirements have been set with the safety of our children in mind. 

To begin the clearance and online training process, go to the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown Youth Protections website.  

If you have any questions or need assistance in accessing the trainings or paperwork, contact the Our Lady of Victory Youth Protections Coordindator.
