Leaders In Training (L.I.T.) Program
Are you too young to get a job? Do you want to gain valuable skills that will help you get a job when you turn 16? The City’s Leaders-In-Training program can help you.
Each summer, the L.I.T. participants work at various City job sites gaining hands-on job experience. The students can be placed anywhere from Accounting to Real Estate, Courts to Recreation, and more. Placements are based on information you provide on the application.
L.I.T. is limited to ages 14-17. It is a voluntary program; there is no payment. This is a great way for young teens to have fun, meet other teens and adult mentors, and to become better prepared to enter the workforce.
Some pre-program training is required, participants will also attend workshops to learn success skills for the work place. A graduation ceremony will be held at the completion of the program.
2014 L.I.T. Dates to Remember:
April 18: Application deadline
May 5-9: Interviews
May 22: Orientation
June 3 - July 11: Program
July 16: Graduation
This is an educational program. Your teen will be placed in a business atmosphere and will need to display maturity and a good attitude. Transportation will not be provided. This means punctuality and attendance will be a shared responsibility between you and your teen. Please do not consider this as an option for free daycare for your teen. Applications will be reviewed and eligible teens will be contacted for an interview. Selected teens will be notified in mid-May. The interview process is highly competitive and not all applicants will be selected.
