The St. John Ambulance (SJA)Council for Ontario is offering an NCO course for youth members between the ages of 13-17. This informative course introduces youth to the skills required to be leaders to the SJA Youth program, and outlines all the required information and expectations required to assist in the running of an effective SJA Youth program. It will also lead to the awarding of the Leadership proficiency. This course is highly recommended as a prerequisite for all potential and current SJA Youth NCO’s.
Council will be holding a Youth NCO Leadership Course the weekend of February 22,23,24, 2013 in Stouffville, Ontario.
