Safe Sitter prepares students in grades 6-8 to be safe when they're home alone, watching younger siblings, or babysitting. Students learn life-saving skills such as how to rescue someone who's choking, and helpful information like what to do if there's severe weather. The lessons are filled with fun activities and role-playing exercises.
Looking for something fun, enriching, and productive for your middle school student to do on one of their scheduled days off from school? Drop them off at the Y for a day filled with leadership and team-building activities, games, volunteer work and more—we will even provide lunch! Please note: Weather permitting, we may leave the Y as a group to seek adventures offsite. Need to drop off early or pick up late? No problem! Participants will also receive a day pass to use before and/or after programming time to play in the gym, pool or Youth Development Center as unstructured free time.
Looking for your first job can feel intimidating, but it doesn't have to be! Let the YMCA bring the opportunities to YOU this spring with our annual Teen Job Fair. In spring, the YMCA Sports Center will host an array of local employers looking to hire teens for a wide variety of positions. Meet with people from across the workforce, hand out your resume, schedule an interview or attend one of the day's many professional development workshops. You're sure to leave with skills and knowledge to help you for years to come. Check back for next year’s dates and info.
