Adult Chaperones help supervise teen missionaries on missions.  Adults are needed for local day-missions in the Philly area and on Holy Week missions. They can participate in whichever days of the missions their schedules allow for, but must complete a certification process which is outlined below. This helps ensure the safety of our youth missionaries. This process usually takes 30 minutes. Once completed, the adult chaperone is certified for three years. The renewal of the certification is a much simpler process.
