When possible, we offer two face to face trainings each year in conjunction with GSEP - one in the Fall and one in the Spring. For those who can not attend these sessions, we can provide on-site training or self-paced training.

Please note that the Archdiocese of Philadelphia requires all adults working with youth to have completed the following:

- PA Child Abuse Check

- PA Criminal Background Check

- Diocesan Safe Environment (Virtus) session

Religious Program Advisor

A trained Advisor works directly with youth on programs from Kindergarten through Seventh Grade. We offer two levels of training - Level 1 for K through 3rd grade and Level 2 for 4th through 7th grade.

Program Mentor

A Program Mentor guides youth through either Mary, the First Disciple or The Spirit Alive program. This on-site training session involves the mentor and the participants and takes about 1 to 2 hours to complete. This is NOT offered as a self-paced training.

If you have any questions about any of the trainings above, please email us at
