Safe Sitter is back at Berkeley Carroll
2 Day Course
January 23 & 24, 9am-4pm
712 Carroll Street, Investigations Room

Cost: $50
Required Age (11-14) 
After a brief hiatus, we are excited to announce that we are once again running the Safe Sitter course this winter.

This is a course that teaches young teens (11-14) everything they need to know to be safe when they're home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting. Students learn life-saving skills, such as how to rescue someone who's choking, and helpful information, like what to do if there's severe weather. The lessons are filled with fun activities and role-playing exercises. Students even get to use CPR manikins to practice CPR or choking rescue.

Registration is capped at 20 students - so don't delay signing up!
