Red Cross – Good Turn Week Event

For more than 100 years, youth in Scouting have committed themselves to do a good turn for their neighbours each day. It is a reflection of Scouts Canada’s vision – Canadian youth making a meaningful contribution to creating a better world – and it is something that Scouting youth take quite seriously.

As part of the 8th Annual Good Turn Week (GTW) initiative the Canadian Red Cross has joined Scouts Canada in offering a series of FREE first aid workshops for youth aged 9 to 16 years of age. These workshops are taking place in four major city centres: Ottawa, Vancouver, Halifax and Mississauga. These workshops have been developed to provide meaningful first aid education experiences and to increase resiliency in local communities.

As a practice, first aid should prevent further suffering, protect life, and promote recovery. The workshop will explore both prevention and response concepts, focusing on increasing the confidence of the learners and inspiring action when they are presented with an emergency situation and the opportunity to help someone in need.

Date of the event:  Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30

Time:  There will be two sessions each day:  9 – 12 and 1 – 4,

LocationMississauga Red Cross Office, 5700 Cancross Court, Mississauga, ON L5R 3E9, Peel Training Room
