Attention youth aged 11 - 14!! Would you like to make extra money during spring break, on weekends, or even this summer? Babysitting may be a perfect opportunity to do just that, but many parents want to make sure they are hiring babysitters who are skilled and capable of providing excellent care for their children while they are away.

Join us on Friday, March 29th from 9 am until 5 pm for an exciting workshop "The Babysitter's Backpack" to learn everything you need to know about the basics of babysitting, including some basic first aid skills. This is not a First Aid or CPR certification course, but will give you basic skills to help you handle emergencies!

The cost is $20.00 and space is limited, so call now to reserve your spot. (910) 576-6011. Bring a baby doll (if you have one) and a bagged lunch!
