Children will also practice riding the bus and driving cars on our mini Safety Town. Space is limited, register early. All children will receive a Safety Town t-shirt to be worn daily.

SAFETY TOWN VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Completing grades 9 - college
Orange Community Education & Recreation is looking for teen volunteers to assist with this summer’s Safety Town program held Monday, July 29 - Friday, August. 2 in the Pepper Pike Learning Center. Volunteers will work directly with children ages 4-5 who are entering kindergarten in the fall. This opportunity is a great way for students to earn volunteer hours for school.
Volunteers must commit to working the entire week from 8:30 am until 12:30 pm.
A MANDATORY TRAINING SESSION will be held on Friday, July 26, 9 am-12 pm at the Pepper Pike Learning Center. All Safety Town volunteers are required to attend this training session or will not be able to volunteer for the program. The training session is an important part as staff will discuss the format for this year’s program and provide volunteer training.
Safety Town is coordinated by Orange Early Childhood Preschool and Orange Schools Resource Officer Todd Bennett from Pepper Pike Police Department. This one-week comprehensive safety program teaches children about fire safety, water safety, gun safety, pedestrian safety, bike safety, bus safety, and poison safety.
