Safe Environment

We share with you access to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Office for Child and Youth Protection’s (OCYP) website and hope that you will find it both helpful and informative. On these pages, you will find an overview of services, resources for victims/survivors of child sexual abuse and their families, important information and resources for Archdiocese clergy, staff and volunteers, as well as a link to the Training Institute.


Touching Safety Lessons

In addition, students attending early childhood education programs or elementary school review a Touching Safety Lesson twice a year – once in the fall, and once in the spring. In these classes, they learn how to identify situations in which an adult may be trying to take advantage of them. Students learn what to do and where to go for help.
