Looking for a great opportunity for your tween or teen?  Check out our virtual Home Alone, Babysitting Training and Safe Guard courses.  More online courses being offered this spring.  Check it out!

Home Alone

The Town of Orangeville has collaborated with SOS 4 Kids to offer our Home Alone Course. This course will be 100% virtual and conducted by an SOS certified instructor.  Home Alone helps bridge the gap in your child’s first steps to staying home on their own without adult supervision. This course covers topics such as street smarts, people safety, online and internet safety, home fires, emergencies and other situations, and basic first aid skills. Ages 9 to 12 years.

Babysitting Training

The Babysitting course, refreshed and revised, now has a greater emphasis on First Aid skills. The Canadian Red Cross Babysitting course, taught by SOS 4 Kids, covers everything from managing difficult behaviours to essential content on leadership and professional conduct as a babysitter. This aim of this course is to deepen and enhance the responsibility that older youth feel when caring for younger children. The updated curriculum, complete with new science, also provides improved learning when it comes to giving the appropriate care in the event of an emergency. Age 11 to 15 years.

SafeGuard

This course is for day camp counsellors, counsellors-in-training, future lifeguards, and others who accompany groups of young people to pools or waterfronts. SafeGuard focuses on water safety awareness, accident prevention, and the principles of aquatic safety supervision. SafeGuard teaches participants how to identify hazards and at-risk behaviours, how to recognize potential victims, and how to respond safely in an aquatic emergency. Ages 12 + and able to swim.
