Classes and Community

Our commitment to the well-being of children goes beyond our walls. We connect with kids, their families and their communities by advocating for child health, offering classes on topics such as puberty and babysitting, and providing free or low-cost safety and injury-prevention gear.

During this five-hour class, babysitters ages 11 to 15 learn CPR, basic first aid and how to use an AED.

In 2013, we provided over $246 million in community programs and services to make children, teens and families safer and healthier.

Texting while driving, exercising or even walking can cause deadly accidents.
