Saint Joseph's College will offer two babysitter certification classes, the first meeting Tuesday, and a follow-up session on Sept. 15; both sessions will meet from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Harold Alfond Center on the Standish campus.
The course provides children ages 11 to 15 with the information and skills necessary to provide safe and responsible care for children in the absence of parents or guardians.
Topics include leadership skills, caregiving, first aid and safe play.
Students will be given a comprehensive babysitter's training manual and the tools needed to create a babysitter's kit.
With successful completion of the course, participants will earn an American Red Cross Babysitter's Training certification.
Students should bring their own lunch, pencil and paper.
The cost is $75 (or $65 for recertification) for members of the community.
If a class is needed on a different day, Saint Joseph's can create a class at another time if there are four interested people.
