H2O to host Home Alone Program on March 6th

February 14, 2024

H2O will host another session of its popular HOME ALONE program on Wednesday, March 6th from 6:00-8:30 PM at Cove Community Center, 12525 Lake Avenue.

What is HOME ALONE? An amazing peer-to-peer mentorship project and more!

HOME ALONE events are designed by H2O high school leaders and staff to convey important safety information to 9-12 year old students in an engaging, meaningful way. In order to attend HOME ALONE, students must live in Lakewood and be accompanied by at least one parent or guardian.

During each 2-1/2 hour training, students will rotate with their assigned group through six interactive safety presentations led by H2O high school leaders.

HOME ALONE event topics include:

  • Emergencies – How and when to Call 9-1-1
  • Basic First Aid – What to do if accidents or injuries occur
  • Tricky People & Street Smarts – How to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
  • Routines and Siblings – Establishing house rules and role-playing conflict resolution
  • Internet Safety – Advice for maintaining positive, healthy experiences online
  • Mental Health – Building resilience and maintaining a healthy mind and body.

While students are engaged with the high school leaders, their parents/guardians will receive valuable safety information presented by local experts from Lakewood Police, Fire, and EMS, as well as a cyber-crime against children and adult education expert from the Geauga County Office of the Prosecutor.

There is a Family Fee of $15.00 for HOME ALONE , which includes materials students and parents receive at the event. Families registering more than one child between the ages of 9-12 do not have to purchase extra tickets to register additional children. Each ticket admits all children of qualifying age and their parents/guardians.

Please email emmie.hutchison@lakewoodoh.net for financial assistance to cover the fee.

Space is limited. Registration is held on a first-come, first-served basis. H2O encourages early enrollment to ensure your attendance.
