Summer

GI girls summer

The Girls Incorporated Summer Program provides girls ages 5 to 14 with active, hands-on enrichment activities in a fun and safe environment. Girls are divided into groups based on age. Each group has an adult counselor who works with the girls to plan and implement activities. In our Summer Program, the girls participate in a multitude of activities that promote cognitive development, artistic expression, social-emotional growth, and physical education. Girls hone leadership and critical thinking skills and combat summer learning loss.

TEEN Counselor-In-Training Program

48. Duffy-Marie Arnoult Photography

The Counselor-In-Training (C.I.T.) program is an educational and job skill summer program for teen girls that are 15 to 18 years old.

Summer can be especially challenging for teens as they are not quite at the age yet to take on a serious job, but need to begin exploring career path options. The Counselor-In-Training program is designed for high school students who feel they’ve grown out of summer camps and are looking for something a little more challenging… sort of a stepping stone into adulthood, you might say.

Advantages to being a Counselor-in-Training:

C.I.T.’s work as part of a team of staff to facilitate activities for children ages 5-14 during the summer each day.

Through this summer position, the advantage to CIT’s is that they will:

  • Gain valuable work experience
  • Develop new skills
  • Practice leadership
  • Explore future career possibilities
  • Work as a team with professional staff
  • Have fun helping kids from our community and be a great role model
  • Receive a Program Completion Certificate documenting volunteer hours
  • Receive a Letter of Reference for college or a job (as needed)
  • Have a fun and awesome summer!

The C.I.T. program runs daily, Monday through Friday, from 7/2/2018 to 8/24/2018, from 10 am to 5 pm (hours can be flexible); with one wrap-up meeting scheduled in September (date/ time TBD).

For more information about the C.I.T. Program or to register, please check out the C.I.T. Program brochure.
