Summer 2019 Job Description
CIT 2019 Info for Students
CIT Parent Information

What is the CIT Program? The Counselor in Training (CIT) program at Agassiz Baldwin Community is the summer cohort of the Youth Employment Program. We aim to provide middle school youth with an opportunity to volunteer in the community and gain valuable professional skills in the process. After successfully completing their session and all of the CIT responsibilities, CITs earn a $75 stipend.

What do CITs do at Outback?
The role of a CIT is to be a positive role model and leader to campers enrolled in Outback. Tasks may include cleaning, organizing, and setting up/breaking down program equipment, supporting staff and campers during daily transitions, maintaining water containers throughout the day, and assisting teachers with activities by providing help to individual youth and getting supplies.

CITs are expected to attend regular check ins, arrive promptly at the start of their shift and after returning from their break, complete a weekly timesheet, and will be supported, coached, and evaluated by their CIT Coordinator.
