Promotion of sport for young people
Those taking part in official Jugend+Sport sport camps for children and young people are deemed to be Rega patrons for the duration of the event. This means that any rescue missions carried out on behalf of registered J+S participants will be handled financially in the same way as with regular patrons.
As a J+S coach or leader, you can register participants with Rega solely via the J+S website, Nationale Datenbank Sport (NDS), and ONLY before the event begin.
Within the framework of its "Rega – for you" youth programme, Rega supports activities published on the Pro Juventute Feriennet. For almost 40 years, Pro Juventute has been organising or supporting supervised holiday activities for children and young people. In order to further promote this idea, since 2010 Pro Juventute has given organisers the opportunity to offer numerous holiday passes all over Switzerland via its “Feriennet” booking platform. Participants who have booked a holiday pass activity and have registered with Rega are deemed to be Rega patrons for the duration of the activity. This means that any rescue missions performed on behalf of a person participating in a holiday pass activity will be handled financially in the same way as for regular Rega patrons.
First aid in schools
Rega and Samariter Schweiz have launched the programme, "Retten ist KLASSE – Erste Hilfe an Schulen". The programme, which is available in German, French and Italian, is free of charge and is aimed both at teachers and at schoolchildren aged 12 and over. Its objective is to raise awareness among schoolchildren of the subject of first aid, to teach them basic first aid and to motivate them to take action. The programme comprises an eBook and three teaching units lasting around 45 minutes each.
