Event description


South Georgia Medical Center and the YMCA are teaming up to offer a one-day Safe Sitter® course for boys and girls ages 11 to 14

Safe Sitter® is a national, non-profit organization that provides programs to teach youth life and safety skills for when they are home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting. The medically accurate course utilizes hands-on training to teach choking rescue and CPR so that graduates are prepared to act during a crisis.

In general, inadequate emphasis is placed on the magnitude of the responsibility a young teen accepts when caring for themselves and others. Most young teens lack the knowledge of first aid, rescue skills, behavior management techniques, and life experiences necessary for handling medical, behavioral, or household emergencies which might occur.

Participants of this course learn safety and security precautions and other tips that help develop their confidence in caregiving. They also learn safe and effective ways to promote their babysitting business.
