Thinkstock Share: Youth Courses/ Workshops Depending on numbers and level of interest, the MFRC offers courses for youth. The Canadian Safety Council Home Alone Course is designed for children ages 10 and up. This program provides children with the skills and knowledge needed to be safe and responsible when home alone, for short periods of time. We also offer the St John Ambulance Babysitting Course to children ages 12 and up. This program focuses on safety, first aid basics and dealing with emergencies. The MFRC advertises, compiles an interest list and if numbers warrant offers the programs, usually in early September.
