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 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, click on on one of the links below:
