The popular Safe Sitter® class, taught by pediatric nurses for youth ages 11-13, will be offered on Saturday, August 1, 9 a.m.to 4 p.m. at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton Health Education Center.
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. Over 175 lives have been saved by Safe Sitter® graduates using the skills learned through the Safe Sitter® training. More information about the program may be found at www.safesitter.org.
The cost for this one-day class is $50; some scholarships are available. Because seating is limited, advance registration is required. There is an additional Saturday class opportunity this year on November 7. For more information or to register, call Gladys Peeples, 410-810-5664.
