Employees’ Teens Recruited for Summer Work
The UCSB Alumni Association’s Family Vacation Center counselor-in-training (CIT) program is now accepting applications for this summer from local teenagers, especially those from employee families.
The center’s CIT program offers an opportunity to gain a variety of work experiences, handle different age groups up to middle school, be mentored by college-age counselors, and earn a stipend while learning, according to Caitlin Simpson, CIT coordinator.
“About 60 percent of our CITs were the sons or daughters of staff or faculty this last summer,” she said. “This is consistent with pervious years as well.”
Trainees run in age from 13 to 18 and will receive instruction before the center opens on July 2. They will work approximately 30 hours a week, from Sunday through Friday, with two days off. Flexible schedules allow family vacations, and the stipend is up to $75 week. Extra money may be earned from babysitting, according to the CIT Web site.
