LIT Fieldwork

Leaders In Training Day Camp

The YMCA's Leader in Training (LIT) and Counselor in Training (CIT) programs are an excellent opportunity for teens to learn hands-on job experience and responsibilities, while still under the supervision of our camp staff team.

Additionally, all hours completed within LIT Placement can be recorded as community service hours!

More Information

Within this program, teens learn leadership, group management skills, child development basics, and policies and procedures in relation to working with youth. Interacting with campers and representing the Y requires a certain level of maturity. For this reason, the Fieldwork program is selective. Upon completion of the L.I.T. Training Course, teens will be invited to participate in the fieldwork program. L.I.T.s will be required to follow the Y camp staff dress code: solid, non-denim pants or shorts, unaltered  t-shirt; tennis shoes. Dress code and behavior expectations will be detailed during the training course. The program is designed for campers to enroll in at least one session of fieldwork upon completion of the training course.

For the safety of our campers and L.I.T.s, returning L.I.T.s must still enroll in an L.I.T. Training Course in order to be eligible for fieldwork. L.I.T.s may also receive a letter demonstrating their 35 hours of community service for each week of fieldwork that they complete.
