Often, youth are on their own for short periods of time, perhaps after school, before parents come home from work or at shopping complexes such as the local mall. Stay Safe! is a new course designed for youth aged 9 to 13 years, in order to provide skills and knowledge to increase their confidence in staying safe on their own or within their community. The program offers age-appropriate first aid knowledge and skills to reduce injury to self or others, should an emergency occur.
