Youth Protection Program

The Youth Protection Program is a new one hour self-guided training course provided by the Diocese of Altoona Johnstown. This training is required for all employees, all clergy and as well as for volunteers who wish to participate at St. Thomas School during regular school hours. We thank all volunteers for your time, talents, and compliance and look forward to seeing you soon!
