About the program

Safe Sitter® courses provide young teens (grades 6-8) with life and safety skills needed for babysitting. The Instructor-led class is filled with fun games and role-playing exercises. Students even use manikins to practice rescue skills like choking and CPR.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Perform child and infant CPR techniques
  • Rescue a child or infant who is choking
  • Care for children of all ages
  • Prevent problem behavior
  • Prevent possible injury and decide on the seriousness if someone is injured
