ISU Extension in Cass County is excited to partner with the Nishna Valley Family YMCA to offer “On Their Own and OK!,” a course to help youth gain the skills and confidence to stay home alone. The program will be held on Thursday, December 28 from 9 AM to 4 PM at the Nishna Valley Family YMCA in Atlantic. The program is open to any interested youth who are currently in 4-8th grade.
 
Topics covered throughout the day will include handling emergencies and basic first aid, safety and privacy with electronics and other appliances, daily routines and responsibilities, and dealing with siblings and friends when home alone. In addition, youth will learn the basics of healthy meals and snacks, including preparing their own meal and snack during the class! Participants will also get a workbook to help start a conversation about family rules, activities and more when home alone.
 
There is no charge to attend this program, and all materials are provided, but pre-registration is required and the class size is limited to 25 youth. To register, call the Cass County Extension office at 712-243-1132 or email xcass@iastate.edu. A registration form with more course details can be printed at the link below, or picked up at the Cass County Extension Office or YMCA.
