YMCA LIT Summer Volunteer Program | Community Service Opportunity

Summer is around the corner & I hope this email serves as a resource for your students looking for community service opportunities over the break.

I wanted bring to your attention the YMCA program called Leaders In Training (LIT).

The LIT program is a comprehensive job readiness program that prepares and provides high school students with the opportunity for a hands on work experience as a YMCA Jr. Camp Counselor (Please see attached for Dates). Trainings are held at our South Bay Family YMCA Teen Center at 820 Paseo Ranchero in Chula Vista.

LIT Training modules include:

• CPR/First Aid Certification

• Leadership Development

• Resume Workshop

• Interview skills

• Youth Development

• Basic Supervision and more…

Once trained they are eligible to participate in LIT Placement where they work side by side with a camp staff and receive up to 40 hrs. of community service per week worked. Your students will gain valuable work experience that can lead to opportunities for careers working with children including the YMCA.

Although there is a cost for the program there is value gained with the work experience, certifications, and trainings modules offered.

If eligible scholarships are available.
