Please get this to all of your Council Advocates and Grand Knights, so they can address this to their council at their July & August meetings.  This needs to get done ASAP.  You can also inform them it will be on the State Web site.  Thanks for your help.

You all may have heard that Supreme is going to be requiring all selected Youth Leaders to fulfill all local diocesan safe environment/youth protection requirements for persons working with children and young people in the diocese.  These requirements typically include completion of sexual abuse awareness training and a background check.  Youth leaders must complete these diocesan requirements before they begin their service or within 30 days from the time they begin working with young people. Only members who have had the required diocesan training and completed any required diocesan background check should be working with children and young people.  
The Knights of Columbus strongly encourages all Officers and other Fraternal Leaders who supervise youth leaders, including Grand Knights, State Deputies, and District Deputies, to complete all diocesan safe environment/youth protection requirements.   
The Knights of Columbus asks that all youth leaders, and those that supervise youth leaders, provide a copy of the certificate of completion they received (e.g., VIRTUS training) as evidence that they have completed the required diocesan training. 
Beginning on July 1, 2014, all youth leaders, and those that supervise youth leaders, must scan and e-mail a copy of the diocesan certificate to youthleader@kofc.org  
The e-mail subject line should contain the council or circle number and the youth leader's name and membership number (e.g., Circle 560, John Doe, #8675309). 
The Knights of Columbus is also requiring members who are nominated to serve as State Squires Chairman, Chief Counselor or Counselor in the Columbian Squires Program or as a Boy Scout troop leader to submit an application and a background check authorization form to the Supreme Office. Candidates for these positions may obtain a form from their Grand Knight, Council Advocate or State Advocate.
Once completed, the candidates should give the form to the Grand Knight or Faithful Navigator. After the Grand Knight or Faithful Navigator, or his designee, checks the references listed and is satisfied the candidate is suitable for appointment, he should sign the form and email it to youthleader@kofc.org.  The e-mail subject line should contain the council or circle number and the youth leader's name and membership number (e.g., Circle 560, John Doe, #8675309).
Upon approval, a certificate will be issued to the candidate confirming his appointment. Approval is good for up to three years from the date on the certificate.
For more information, please contact Ron Boyce State Advocate at  rboyce4539@aol.com or 503-730-1986.
