Mission:

Safe Sitter, Inc. prepares young adolescents for the profound responsibilities of nurturing and protecting children.

Programs:

The organization prepares young adolescents for the profound responsibilities of nurturing and protecting children. The organization has almost 900 teaching sites from coast to coast. Each year almost 35,000 young adolescents take the course. There are over 4,000 safe sitter instructors. In general, adequate emphasis is placed on the magnitude of the responsibility a young adolescent accepts when accepting a babysitting job. Most young adolescents lack the knowledge of first aid, rescue skills, behavior management techniques and life experiences necessary for handling medical, behavioral, or household emergencies which might occur. Successful completion of an education program addressing these competencies should be a community standard for all of those who care for children. Each participant must pass a written exam proving mastery of key concepts. Students in all courses must also demonstrate acceptable skills in infant/child cpr. Students in the 12 hour course must also demonstrate the ability to apply injury and behavior management techniques. All sites registered to teach safe sitter utilize only safe sitter trained instructors for student instruction thus ensuring high quality and compliance with teach methodologies. There have been over 150 documented cases of lives saved by the organization's graduates using their knowledge and skills.

safe sitter provides scholarships for instructors and students.

Reviews for Safe Sitter Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Safe Sitter lives up to its name, consistently and with great integrity. Not only does this organization train young adolescents to care for younger children, Safe Sitter also makes sure that the sitters themselves know how to be safe. Safe Sitter helps young people be good caregivers today, and good parents tomorrow.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...talking with parents who were themselves Safe Sitter graduates, and whose children are now Safe Sitters. I've recommended the Safe Sitter course to many young people, all of whom loved the knowledge, competence, security and income they derived as a result.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

...see to it that all young adolescents had an opportunity to experience Safe Sitter!
