YMCA SF Chinatown - Counselors in Training
The Counselor in Training Program is designed to give teens interested in becoming a summer Y camp counselor a chance to learn and develop their skills as a leader. Through this program, participants will learn how to lead games, teach cheers, supervise a group of children grades K-8, and understand the importance of group work.
Along with learning the skills needed to lead a group, teens will learn valuable confidence building life skills such as responsibility, time management, and organization. To enforce group bonding and team work, CIT’s will go on fieldtrips every other week such as: bowling, ice skating, and movies to name a few. All participants will meet at the Chinatown YMCA and will need to bring a bag lunch every day.
