Education Department - Catholic Conference of Ohio

About the Education Department

The Catholic Conference of Ohio's Department on Education serves those involved in Catholic elementary and secondary schools, religious education, youth and young adult ministry, and college campus ministry. Those meeting as groups on a regular basis include the Diocesan Directors of Campus Ministry, the Diocesan Directors of Religious Education, Superintendents of Schools, and Diocesan Directors of Youth and Young Adult Ministry. Each of these groups uses the Conference as a forum for planning, discussion, cooperative action and professional growth.

Resources to help talk about the importance of living healthy, drug free lives

An effort is underway across Ohio to prevent drug use among Ohio’s most vulnerable citizens – our children. Start Talking! gives parents, guardians, educators and community leaders the tools to start the conversation with Ohio’s youth about the importance of living healthy, drug-free lives.

Children of parents who talk to their teens about drugs are up to 50% less likely to use.
