Teen Teambuilding: Youth in grades 6-12 develop leadership, communication, and stress management skills through experiential activities.
 
Babysitting Basics: Participants will learn about the responsibilities of a babysitter, what employers expect, and how to care for infants and toddlers. Youth learn about age appropriate toys and activities, safety, and basic first aid. All participants receive a book filled with information about childcare as well as a certificate of completion at the end of the course. For youth ages 10-18.
