On Their Own and OK - The Youth Guide

On Their Own & OK builds skills in youth, and incorporates ways for adults in the home to support this step towards independence. Youth can develop their self-care skills to make good decisions while staying home alone. With adequate education from parents, teachers, and community partners, young people can develop confidence in the skills they need for staying home alone safely.

On Their Own & OK reinforces how to act in an emergency, helps young people handle boredom without technology, recommends age-appropriate chores, and includes plans for a family celebration to continue to strengthen family relationships.

This guide is for youth participants. To print, choose "booklet" from the page size and handling section of your print window. Print on both sides. Will print on 8.5 x 11 paper to be folded in half for a finished size of 8.5 x 5.5.

Youth-serving organizations in Iowa are encouraged to contact their local Iowa State University Extension and Outreach county office to explore partnership opportunities in administering this program.
