A Counselor-In-Training (C.I.T.) is a Girl Scout Senior/Ambassador who participates in our extremely successful Leadership Program directed toward her future in camp counseling, teaching, or other human service fields. Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa is proud to offer one of the most successful C.I.T. programs in the nation. Based upon the resources of Girl Scouts of the USA, this Leadership Program is completed over a two summer period.
Grade 10 - C.I.T. I: The focuses are experience in responsibility, program goals, contemporary issues, leadership styles, child development, outdoor living skills, group dynamics, conflict resolution and program interaction with campers.
Grade 11 - C.I.T. II: The skills learned in the first year, augmented by program immersion with campers, are expanded upon through skills specialization, safety practices, and leading activities. As a further progression, individuals who successfully complete the program may apply to work at a Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa camp as an “Apprentice Counselor.” This allows these outstanding young women the opportunity to be employed at an earlier age.
