Home Alone Safety

Empowerment Squared’s Home Alone Safety Program is a four session online program designed for youth between the ages of 10-13 deemed mature and responsible enough to stay at home alone for a short period of time. This program empowers them to make decisions that will keep themselves and their siblings safe if they are facing a crisis, this is done through a clear safety plan created for the youth and guardians in the event of an emergency . This course does not certify youth to babysit. This course is based on the Home Alone Safety for Kids program developed by SOS 4 Kids!

We help participants develop skills and tools to create safe environments for themselves at home, school, online and in their communities through delivery of games, digital media, videos, and realistic scenarios. Our mentors work with participants and their guardians to develop a safety plan through tools and techniques learned in our program so they have a clear understanding of what to do in the event of an emergency. 

Our program is designed to be engaging for participants in which they work with mentors to complete 7 interactive modules. Participants receive a safety badge for the completion of each of the seven modules. The seven safety badges include: “Street Smarts”, “Map Out My Route”, “At Home Safety”, “Online Safety”, “Fire Safety”, “First Aid”, “Accident Prevention”. When participants earn all seven badges they are awarded with the Home Alone Safety Certification!
