Union County 4-H is pleased to introduce a new component to our Summer Fun program called the Counselors-in-Training (CIT) Program. The CIT Program is a competitive, service learning opportunity designed for teens, 15 years of age or older, who want to further develop their leadership, citizenship, and communication skills as well as gain experience in planning and implementing activities for young children.

Participants will be responsible for attending training, keeping a journal to document their experience, participating in the group service learning project, and completing necessary trainings. The cost is $50, which is due at the first training session, to cover a portion of the fees associated with the various camps.

As a CIT, youth will:

  • Be mentored by Leadership team
  • Be a part of a day camp set up
  • Document their experience
  • Set and track goals
  • Get to know other participants in his or her age group
  • Help all participants to engage in the program experience
  • Foster the purpose of 4-H
  • Be a great role model
  • Build lasting friendships
  • Learn valuable 21st Century leadership skills
  • Make lifelong impressions on the lives of younger children

Applications are due by April 15, 2015. Candidates will be notified of acceptance into the program by May 1, 2015 via letter to the address on the application. Please click CIT Program to view the application.
