What is the CIT Program? The Counselor in Training (CIT) program at Maria L. Baldwin Community Center 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.

When are the 2024 CIT sessions?
Session 1: July 1st-12th (closed July 4th)
Session 2: July 15th-26th
Session 3: July 29th-August 9th
Session 4: August 12th-23rd

AM Shift: 8am-2:30pm
PM Shift: 12:30-6pm

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 teacher mentor.

Support Us! We are committed to keeping the CIT program free for participants, and paying each participant who successfully completes the program a $75 stipend. We feel that these are core pieces of creating a “first job” experience for teens, but we could use your support to help offset this expense.

If you are able, please consider making a donation so we can keep running this important community program, building the next generation of strong leaders, competent camp counselors, and enthusiastic community builders!
