Leaders in Training Program

Do you have a teen who is interested in learning job skills in a fun environment? Consider the YMCA’s Leaders in Training (LITs) program. Teens, ages 14-17, learn valuable skills in a fun and engaging camp environment.  These skills translate to any summer job, but especially to our summer day camp program. By shadowing our summer day camp counselors, our LITs gain important life skills in problem solving, leadership, communication and how to be responsible for and nurture children.

Registration in this program is on an application basis only and spots are limited. Have your teen send a cover letter to our Childcare and Camp Director. Cover letters should include:
  • A brief introduction about the applicant
  • Why they want to participate
  • What they hope to gain by participating in the LIT program.
