WETASKIWIN & AREA LEADERS OF TOMORROW AWARDS
HOME ALONE SAFELY PROGRAM
The Leaders of Tomorrow Award is a volunteer recognition program which enables community organizations and individuals to publicly recognize the contributions of children and youth. The purpose of the Leaders of Tomorrow Award Program is to encourage the nominees to continue their involvement in volunteerism and leadership activities, as well as acknowledge that all voluntary contributions are valuable to the community.
The City of Wetaskiwin, through Family and Community Support Services (FCSS), is proud to be a supporter and sponsor of the Wetaskiwin and Area Leaders of Tomorrow Awards since the commencement of the program in 1995. FCSS believes that volunteerism is the heart of our community and wholeheartedly supports the recognition of our young volunteers.
Home Alone Safely program is for children 9 to 11 years of age that may be left home alone for short periods of time. This course will help you decide if your child is ready to be left home alone. Children learn guidelines around safety in the kitchen, what to do with strangers at the door or on the phone, how to keep busy, how to play safe and much more, including a presentation on fire safety. There are two parts to the course -- a one hour session with both children and at least one parent and the remainder of the course (approximately 5 hours) instructed for the children only.
