    Overview

    Over the course of two weeks, each 13-15 year old Leader in Training (LIT) participant will work with the LIT coordinator every morning on a new topic focusing on life skills that will help them in future job searches, taking leadership roles at school, and even college preparation. Then, they will immerse themselves in camp for the afternoon. Upon finishing their two weeks, LITs will have the option to volunteer with the Chicago Botanic Gardens Camp.

    The LIT program is a two-week commitment, meeting Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. throughout the summer. Each LIT will be scheduled in weeklong timeframes. Two consecutive weeks are preferred, but not required. Applications will be available until the program fills. LIT interviews will be conducted from February through April, and participants will receive training before camp begins.
