CHARACTER & LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT FOR TEENAGERS

At the Club, there are a variety of opportunities for teens to develop responsibility and there is also a long-standing culture of mentorship.   High school teens who currently facilitate, lead, or staff programs were previously middle school students who looked up to older students in those roles.  As they take over those roles and responsibilities, they are taught the importance of being a role model and mentor to those who are younger than they are. 

For more information, contact Jeff Goncalves, Program Director, at [email protected]. High school students, feel free to contact us for more information about teen programming!

Summer Leader-In-Training (LIT)

Our Summer Leader-In-Training (LIT) program encourages high schoolers volunteering hands-on at our summer camp, assisting with all aspects of the camp day.  Our LITs start their morning in a classroom session, where they learn the skills, traits and characteristics necessary to be a successful employee.  From there, they transition to groups, where they receive invaluable hands-on training working with campers.  Our LITs work side-by-side with our camp counselors assisting with all aspects of the camp day, from running camp activities to supervising swim time.

High School Junior Staff program

Our high school Junior Staff program consists of members who volunteer on a weekly basis in our program areas, working hands-on with our Program Staff to facilitate activities, supervise children and engage Club members in projects.  In addition, they also participate in workshops and lessons on filling out a job application, creating a job resume and sharpening interview skills. The highlight of this program is watching our Junior Staff members grow into mentors for our younger Club members.
