It will help them understand how to prevent problems, handle real-life situations, and keep them safe and constructively occupied.

The course material covers such topics as:
* Establishing a routine
* House Key is your responsibility
* Strangers
* Telephone
* Emergencies
* Basic First Aid
* Internet Safety

Program is 4 hours in length and focuses on small group discussions, problem solving, role-playing, and instructor-led demonstrations. Please dress comfortably. Includes student manual and certificate.
