Background Check and Training for Volunteers

The Office for the Protection of Children & Vulnerable Adults (OPCVA) of the Diocese of San Jose is committed to fostering healthy relationship by means of educating, training, and screening all adults who have regular access to children, youth and vulnerable adults within the Diocese of San Jose for the purpose of preventing harm.
