Throughout the summer, this fun and informative program will offer youth the opportunity to enjoy hands-on, real world training regarding critical public safety topics. The program scope will cover public safety education, public safety certification, community service, and team-building excursions. As a part of the training program, students will have the opportunity to tag along on a number of social and cultural trips pertaining to public safety. Students will also have the opportunity to pursue certification in a number of crucial public safety trainings, including: boating safety, CPR, AED certification, first aid, blood-borne pathogens, fire extinguishers, introduction to scuba diving, stop the bleed, introduction to drones, rope safety, and more. Many of the trainings and certifications provided are the same as those offered to adult learners, offering a challenging but rewarding curriculum to participating students. By the conclusion of the summer, students will walk away with a number of newfound skills, as well as credentials which will serve them both now and in the years to come.
