Love 146. End child trafficking & exploitation
Love146 is an international human rights organization working to end child trafficking and exploitation through survivor care and prevention education. The trafficking and exploitation of children is one of the darkest stories and most severe human rights abuses imaginable. But for Love146, the hope of ending it is a reality.

Join us for a night of hope and action as Love146 presents an exploration of the problem of human trafficking in Connecticut and around the world. Their representatives will teach us the signs and practical ways we can fight to end slavery once and for all.

Many new babysitters face fears when it comes time to begin babysitting. Will I know how to play with the children? What happens if they get hurt? How do I change a diaper? This four hour class is designed to prepare teens to feel confident when accepting a babysitting job. It covers topics such as interviewing tips, getting paid, how children play, ages and stages, communicating with children, basic care, changing diapers, and handling emergencies. At the completion of the course, participants will take a brief quiz and certificates of completion will be distributed.
Instructor, Amanda Tucker has taught Kindergarten and is currently a 2nd grade teacher. She holds three teacher certifications including Early Childhood, General Education and Special Education and a Master’s Degree in Literacy.

Open to all teens in grades 6-12. Registration is required. Please bring a bag lunch, pen and paper.
