Babysitter Training

OMK BabysitterThis program is designed to ensure there are qualified babysitters in all regions of Idaho who can meet the needs of military families. Often military families do not live near friends and family and need trained babysitters about whom they can feel confident. This program provides leadership and professional skills to community and military youths.

Training Sessions

Youths ages 12-17 are invited to participate in the babysitter training program. Classes are scheduled on demand in communities throughout Idaho, with a preferred class size of 6-15. They are free to military, guard, and reserve personnel, and a nominal fee is charged to others. To schedule babysitter training in your community, contact OMK

Become a Trainer

We need trainers who can hold sessions in each region of Idaho.  2600 military youths live outside of the Treasure Valley. Become an official OMK volunteer and attend training sessions to become qualified as a trainer in your own community.
