Teens at the South Mountain Y Learn, Lead and Inspire in CIT Summer Program

The South Mountain YMCA CIT Program is up and running for the summer! Our rising 9th and 10th graders have just completed their first week of training and are ready to shadow senior counselors at YKNOTS, SOMAPY, Creative Theatre, Summer Discovery and Global Arts Camp. During their first week, our CITs  learned how to successfully run an ACA Accredited Camp while keeping their campers safe, engaged and smiling! We visited New Jersey City University in Jersey City to get a first hand experience on applying to college, got hands on experience in Healthy Living cooking workshop with Chef Lila, gained Diversity and Inclusion training with Jackie Silva the Senior Human Resources Generalist at the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges, and brainstormed rainy day activities for each of our camp assignments!

If your teen is interested in being a CIT, Session 2 begins on July 15th and runs through August 2nd. Come be a part of the next generation of leaders at the South Mountain Y as we learn, lead and inspire! Register now at
