(Ages 11 and Older)

Babysitter Training Course

Are your teens (ages 11 and older) ready to take on the role of a babysitter? This class incorporates hands-on activities as well as educational materials to give students a well-rounded class experience.  Students who successfully complete this course will leave the class with a YMCA Certified Babysitting Certificate, CPR/First Aid certification, and the knowledge and tools needed to successfully navigate their first babysitting job.  Not only will your teen learn how to engage with children while keeping them safe, but they will also learn the importance of good business practices and how to effectively communicate with parents.
