LEWISTON — The YWCA of Central Maine will offer an American Red Cross Babysitter’s Training course for boys and girls ages 11-15. Classes will be held during April vacation Thursday, April 24, and Friday, April 25, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

This class is geared toward pre-teen/teenagers who are responsible for caring for younger siblings or those looking for summer babysitting employment opportunities.

This training course designed by the American Red Cross prepares youth with the training every parent wants in a babysitter: home and outdoor safety, basic child care, safe play, first aid, critical emergency skills, and professional leadership and care-giving skills. Each participant will receive an ARC child & infant CPR certification upon completion of the course.

The cost of the program is $75 for members and $90 for nonmembers. Space is limited. For more information or to register, call the YWCA of Central Maine at 795-4050.
