Rutgers Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development program plans to offer a babysitting course designed for youth ages 13 and older. Scheduled to begin April 2, the seven week course will be taught by new 4-H volunteer Christine Meehan at the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Meeting Room, 355 Courthouse -S. Dennis Road in Cape May Court House. Classes will be held April 2, 9, 16, 30 and May 7, 14, and 21 at 6:30 p.m. Space is limited and there is no fee for participation. Register Today. Call the 4-H office at 465-5115 ext. 605
The objectives of the program are to familiarize teens with the responsibilities of babysitting and equip them with the skills and information necessary to become capable, caring, responsible sitters. In keeping with the 4-H “learn by doing” philosophy of experiential learning, the course will include hands-on activities, fun role playing and classroom discussion.
4-H delivers many programs through volunteers working within informal education settings. 4-H offers volunteers access to research based curriculum and provides training to volunteers who serve as informal educators. “Christine originally contacted 4-H inquiring about a 4-H curriculum for a babysitting course she had seen online”, explains County Agent Julie Karavan, “a former 4-H parent, Christine had a vision for the program she wished to offer. We are excited to work with her and support this educational opportunity for young people.”
4-H holds monthly orientations for adults aged 21 and older interested in volunteering.
The next volunteer orientation will be offered April 3 at 6:30 p.m. The orientation will take place at the Rutgers Cooperative Extension office, 355 Court House – S. Dennis Rd., in Cape May Court House.
4-H volunteer opportunities are varied to suit your interests and the time commitment is flexible. Call 465-5115 x 605, or email email@example.com to get more information about the orientation and to pre-register.
