The complete Called to Protect™ series includes four parts, including the first-ever program specifically for Catholic middle- and high-school aged youths, and an innovative new program for elementary-aged children based on the latest child development research. Praesidium experts carefully developed the content and conducted extensive nationwide field testing to ensure that each part is informative, well-received, and effective.
Part One, Called to Protect™ for Ministries, teaches pastors, directors of religious education, catechists, volunteers, and other adults in positions of trust with minors Praesidium's five-step approach to operating safe church programs.
Part Two, Called to Protect™ for Parents and Families, teaches parents what they must know to protect their own children. They learn what to watch for and the actions to take if they see something of concern. They also learn how to begin communicating with their own children about their bodies and how to keep them safe.
Part Three, Called to Protect™ for Youth, teaches middle- and high-school kids about boundaries, how to respond if someone tries to violate their boundaries, and how to tell their parents if they or their friend have been abused.
Part Four, Called to Protect™ for Young Children, teaches age appropriate information to children in elementary school. They learn rules about protecting their bodies and what to do if someone tries to break the rules. The content and teaching methods use the latest child development research to ensure their effectiveness.
