Students learn CPR, AED procedures

18 students at AmeriSchools Academy that were attending an Arizona Youth Partnership Summer Leadership Institute learned valuable life skills today! The students were able to learn infant and adult CPR, and learn the proper procedures for using an AED machine. Youth Educator, Dominque Cruz taught the students, aged 10-13 various first aid techniques, while stressing the importance of calling 911 first. All of the students received certification in CPR and AED use. Cruz stressed the benefit of the students sharing these new skills in their communities, and several students were excited to show their new certification cards to the parents of kids they babysit!
