First aid

  • Men performing first aid

Purpose

Learn basic first aid.

Description

Invite someone to teach and demonstrate basic first-aid skills, such as cleansing a wound, performing CPR, helping someone who is choking, attending to broken bones, and so on. Give youth opportunities to practice what they learn and create first aid kits. Consider holding a mock disaster—invite members of the community to participate, pretending they are suffering from various injuries and allowing the youth to administer first aid.
