Red Cross Youth Leader Training
Youth Leaders support the Red Cross Youth First Aid Program through the delivery of our Stay Safe! and Babysitting courses. With the required prerequisites, candidates enter into our comprehensive Youth Leader Development Program, designed to prepare them to support dynamic, learner-centered classroom environments.
Step one consists of confirming prerequisites are met: you must be certified in Standard First Aid and CPR/AED Level C and be at least 18 years old or 16-17 years old with on-site adult support.
Step two is an online component (5-7 hrs) where you will learn the fundamentals of instruction and be informed on the Teaching Experience process.
After completing the Teaching Experience module of the online component, you will then complete a teaching experience in a real Youth First Aid classroom.
The final step is the certification. Congratulations! You are now officially a certified Youth Leader.
