C.I.T’s will move around as needed throughout their assigned schedule set by our Recreation Staff. This program is designed to give youth entering the 8th, 9th, or 10th grade a summertime work experience that is fun, but also teaches responsibility, leadership, and good communication skills. Please note that this program insists that its participants are assertive and self-motivated. The success of this program depends on the willingness of each C.I.T. to communicate with recreation staff and parks participants effectively. C.I.T.’s will be trained with staff and must conduct themselves in a professional manner.

Space will be reserved on a first-come, first serve basis. C.I.T’s may register for more than one session if they are interested in gaining additional experience.
