Home Alone Course

Prepare your child to stay home alone!

Is your child ready to stay at home alone? Register today for our YMCA Home Alone Course! Empower children with the confidence needed to care for themselves when home alone. This class is designed for youth ages 10-14 years to provide the skills needed to look after themselves for short periods of time. Participants will learn:

  • Strategies to create a safe and positive environment
  • How to handle real-life situations
  • Injury prevention
  • Basic First Aid skills

Upcoming Home Alone Course Schedule

The ‘Home Alone’ safety course is taught in an interactive classroom environment. We encourage participants to add their own personal experiences in group discussion and activities. The course content includes a first aid for kids section and touches on ways to stay safe when home alone such as cooking dangers and what to do when faced with a stranger at the door or on the phone. When the course is completed, participants get to participate in an hour swim. A certificate of completion is awarded to each participant as proof of participation in the course.
