How to assess a summer program

The Catholic Voice asked Diana Bitz, coordinator of the Safe Environment Project of the Diocese of Oakland, for some questions parents might ask when assessing a summer program:

• Have the staff members been fingerprinted?

• Have staff members been trained to recognize signs of abuse and how to report it?

• Has there been child safety training for the staff? (Topics might include first aid, and ratios of adults to children.)

• What is the policy regarding minors working with minors?
