the kNOw program

The kNOw Program is a safe environment program designed specifically for the Diocese of Lansing where children gather: Schools, churches, youth groups, ministry groups, or mission fields.

The kNOw Program has FOUR goals:

  • To help children and their parents kNOw how to identify and talk about safe, respectful behaviors and situations.
  • To help children kNOw how to identify and talk about behaviors and situations that are not safe.
  • To help adults appropriately respond to children’s concerns about being unsafe and/or disrespected.
  • To inspire Christian communities to greater integrity and authenticity in creating unfailingly safe environments for children.

Please see kNOw training program materials under the resources section.
