Leaders In Training program logoLeaders 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 and fall, 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.

2015 Fall L.I.T. Dates to Remember:

  • Application Deadline: Friday, August 28, 2015
  • Interviews: Tuesday, September 8, 2015 & Wednesday, September 9, 2015
  • Teen/Parent Orientation: Tuesday, Sept. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Community Center
  • Program: September 28-October 9, 2015
  • Graduation: Friday, October 9, 2015

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.
