A babysitting class for 12-18 year-olds will be held at the Yankton Community Library on June 11 and June 12, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. both days.  The class, a partnership between the YCL and 4-H, will be taught by Yankton County 4-H Youth Development Program Assistant Stephanie Smolek.  There is a $25.00 charge to attend both days.  The class is limited to 15 participants.  Teens will need to bring a sack lunch each day.

Attendees will be given a training guide and fill a “goodie bag” that will be put together throughout the course for the babysitters to take on the job with them.  Topics to be discussed include child development, entertaining children, first aid and safety, nutrition and the business of babysitting.   Please note that this is not a Red Cross CPR certified babysitting program.

Interested teens can register for the class at the Yankton Community Library, 515 Walnut Street by June 6, 2014.  Payment must accompany registration.
