The Ela Township Youth Program’s babysitting program, sponsored by Safe Sitter, gives students in grades 6-8 instruction for caring for children, including how to care for a choking infant or child, basic first aid, personal safety, injury prevention and behavior management.

Ethics is also discussed along with the business aspects of babysitting. The program includes a manual and completion card. Participants should bring a baby-sized doll and lunch to class.
