The Scott & White Trauma Injury Prevention Outreach is offering one-day Safe Sitter® courses to provide young teens (ages 11-16) life and safety skills needed to be a knowledgable and responsible babysitter.
Course topics include:
- How, why, and where injuries happen so they can prevent them
- How to decide the seriousness of a problem and if someone is injured
- How to get help in different situations
- How to keep safe while babysitting
- How to care for children of all ages
- How to prevent problem behavior

To become a Safe Sitter®, students must pass a written and practical exam. Parents and friends are invited to attend the graduation ceremony to recognize the Safe Sitters® at the end of the day.
