Become a CIT: Counselor in Training

Too old for camp, too young to work? Volunteering is a great way for tweens and teens to earn service hours and gain work like experiences. The Counselor in Training program is a collaboration between GIVE and our day camp sites at Gallup, Buhr &Fuller Park. CIT volunteers support the camp program and develop leadership skills. ​​Visit our youth volunteer information page for more details on all of our youth volunteer opportunities​.
