Red Cross Babysitting Training

Do you know of a teen that is ready to baby-sit or take their baby-sitting skills to the next level? Do you want to spend your School Day Off constructively while having fun, learning new skills, and becoming a more marketable babysitter in the process?

The Boulder JCC, in collaboration with the American Red Cross, is offering an American Red Cross Babysitting Certification Program for tweens and teens age 11-15.

The class, to take place on Thursday, November 11 from 9:00 am-4:00 pm (on a BVSD day off), will provide the rising babysitters the knowledge, skills, and confidence to care for infants and school-aged children through a combination of videos, activities, hands-on skills training, and discussion. Further, the training will cover first aid response to illness and emergencies, rescue breathing and other appropriate care, communication with parents to learn household rules, recognition of safety and hygiene issues, as well as how to manage and feed young children, and diaper and care for infants.

The comprehensive training is $70 which includes books, a CD-Rom, instructor fees, class materials, certifications, and a pizza lunch.

Please register by Wednesday, November 3, 2010.  To register call Jodi at 303-998-5626, or Shari at 303-998-1900 ext. 106.
