Safe Sitter Program for Adolescents

  • Saturday, August 15, 2020, 8:30 AM - 2:30 PM

The Safe Sitter Program gives adolescents the skills to provide safe, nurturing care for children and to respond appropriately to medical emergencies. It also teaches introductory employment skills and important life skills.

Topics that are covered include Babysitting as a Business, Success on the Job, Child Care Essentials, Safety for the Sitter, Injury Management, Preventing Problem Behavior, Care of Choking Infant and Care of Choking Child. Participants will also have hands-on mannequin practice of rescue skills and participate in small group interactive learning, role-playing and games to enhance the discussion topics.

Those wishing to participate should register early as there are limited spots. When the fee is received, a registration form and student contract will be sent to the participant to complete and bring to the session. The fee is all inclusive but the participants should bring a bag lunch and snacks.

Specific COVID-19 safety precautions will be enforced which include, face mask must be worn at all times while indoors, participants must review and agree to abide by the 4-H COVID-19 Safety Guidelines, and frequent handwashing and use of hand sanitizer will be expected.
