What is the CIT Program? The Counselor in Training (CIT) program at Agassiz Baldwin Community is the summer cohort of the Youth Employment Program.

After successfully completing their session and all of the CIT responsibilities, CITs earn a $75 stipend.

When are the 2022 CIT sessions?

Session 1: July 11th-22nd
Session 2: July 25th-August 5th

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! The last year has been difficult for ABC due to the pandemic. We are facing a challenging recovery and rebuilding period, financially and otherwise, but 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 really 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!

Please visit our donation page and select Counselor in Training under the designation drop-down menu.
