C.I.T. Training is not mandatory for future summer employment, but successful completion of the program is considered a strong asset for future employment opportunities. The training program emphasizes skill building and youth leadership through an in depth training program. Due to the nature of the program, successful applicants are offered a minor compensation for the completion of each week, with the possibility of taking on more responsibility (with compensation) through the summer if the opportunity arises and skills and attitude have been sufficiently developed.
