The Child and Babysitting Safety (CABS) program from ASHI and MEDIC First Aid gives teenagers and young adults everything they need to know for safe and successful babysitting. From getting started with their business, to relating with parents and children, to key safety, caregiving, and first aid tips, the magazine-format CABS guide and vlogger-style video make learning fun.

GSEMA is pleased to offer this course to our Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador level Girl Scouts. It will provide content that can assist in completing badges at those program levels.This course fully completes the Cadette Babysitting Badge which, upon completion, you may purchase at the council shop.This course is available to individual Girl Scout members or groups/troops. Each class is limited to 12 students and a minimum of one additional adult volunteer will be required on site to meet required safety ratios.
