Love kids? Need extra money for the summer? Babysitting might be the job for you!

Join us for a Safe Sitter Workshop 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 11, at the Bridgeport Community Center, 1102 Lawdwin Ave., behind AutoZone.

Safe Sitter is a medically accurate program that teaches boys and girls ages 11 to 18 how to handle emergencies when caring for children.

The class teaches safety, nutrition, behavior management skills and appropriate responses to medical emergencies. This course sums up what every adolescent working with children needs to know in a fun, hands-on way.

The cost of the program is $50, which will cover a workbook and lunch. To register for Safe Sitter, call the Texas A&M AgriLife Wise County Extension office at 940-627-3341.

Chrissy Karrer is a Wise County Extension agent.
