The Counselor in Training Junior Counselor, or CIT Junior Counselor program is an application-based program and is taught by experienced teachers who have a breadth of knowledge in the realm of volunteerism, child development, and classroom management. Interested applicants must complete the CIT Junior Counselor Application and submit two teacher recommendation letters. Applicants will be chosen by the Director of Auxiliary Programs and the Director of the CIT program. Spaces are limited and applicants must be available for training and service as a volunteer in a Summer at Hockaday session. As a CIT Junior Counselor, you will have the opportunity to learn what it takes to be a counselor through hands-on experience and practice opportunities. You will spend a portion of the day with other CITs learning the skills necessary to allow you to serve as a volunteer, which you will then experience in our Summer at Hockaday camps and classes. Through this new program, you are certain to enhance citizenship and leadership skills; delve into volunteerism, all while having fun, enhancing teamwork, and gaining real world experience! After completing this training, you will have the opportunity to continue the volunteer portion of the program for the remainder of the Summer at Hockaday sessions.
