Counselor in Training (CIT) Job Training Program

Counselor in Training (CIT) Job Training Program

School Year CIT Program:

This FREE program is designed to help entering high school students and current high schools prepare for the work force. Students will have a weekly seminar learning more about: 
  • Portfolio Development
  • Work Readiness
  • Job Searching
  • Financial Literacy
  • Hands-on Experience
Students will be able to get hands-on experience during the after school hours working side-by-side with counselors and classroom staff here at the center.

Summer CIT Program:

In March, students will get to apply and interview for a position as a Summer CIT. 30 students will be given a chance to take part in this program, which is an 8 week summer commitment working with Head-Counselors, Admin, Maintenance, Lifeguards, and Teachers during our Summer Day Camp. Students will take part in staff meetings and everyday activities. After completing their 2nd Summer CIT Program, students will receive a stipend. 
*Every Wednesday, from 3pm-4pm, CIT students are expected to join an in-class training session. For more information please call Jason Jean-Baptiste at 203-336-4468 x101
