Home Alone Online is an engaging course that equips youth with skills to create safe environments for themselves at home, school, online and in their communities. By means of games, digital media, video and situational-based scenarios, SOS 4 Kids aims to empower youth to make confident choices, handle real life and prevent dangerous situations and live a safe life. Fun and interactive, kids must earn 7 safety badges to successfully obtain the Home Alone Safety Certificate.
The self-paced program can be done independently at one’s convenience or with a parent/caregiver to help reinforce key safety messaging. The online safety course platform can be beneficial for youth with special needs, youth who live in communities that don’t offer SOS 4 Kids’ programs and youth who are not willing to spend 7 hours in the classroom.
