Facilitated by Fairfax County Community Service Board
Camp William B. Snyder
Saturday, 15 Oct, 9:00AM-4:00PM
As a Leader in a youth based organization first aid training is essential, but why focus on only first aid training for the body? YMHFA prepares you to be able to provide first aid to the whole youth not just physiacl injuries, but also how to attend to the hurts you cant see.
To register, send an email to Mark Greer at firstname.lastname@example.org
