|The Safe Sitter program is taught by trained Safe Sitter instructors, that teaches young adolescents how to handle emergencies when caring for younger children. During the course, students get hands-on practice in basic lifesaving techniques so they are prepared to act in a crisis.
The goal of the Safe Sitter is to reduce the number of avoidable and unintentional deaths among children cared for by babysitters. Thousands of young adolescents across the country have been trained by Safe Sitter to handle life-threatening emergencies.
Safe Sitter participants also receive helpful tips to make them more confident caregivers. They also learn safety and security precautions, such as what to do if a stranger comes to the door and when and how to call for help. And they learn about the business aspects of babysitting. To successfully complete the Safe Sitter program, students have to pass a rigorous practical and written test to show that they have mastered the key concepts and have the skills necessary to handle an emergency.
