Our counselor-in-training program is open to girls entering 7th–9th grades in Fall 2017. It is a great opportunity for girls to help younger students, learn from working with an all-female staff, and contribute and grow as part of a strong group. I love having the chance to work with tween and teen girls (I have two myself), and I'm delighted the CIT program has become such a strong part of the Curious Jane experience. I hope your daughter will join us!

Very Sincerely, Samantha


Here’s What Your Daughter Will Gain

  • Guidance and responsibility while with working with young girls in a fun, supportive environment
  • Leadership training, prior to starting, with Samantha (our Founder)
  • Experience for future work and volunteer experience
  • Letter of reference (upon request) for applications to high school or other volunteer positions
  • A chance to engage with other girls her age in a collaborative environment
 

Who Is Eligible + What’s Expected

  • CITs have real responsibilities. The program works best when your daughter is eager to join us, and takes the commitment seriously.

  • For girls entering 7th–9th grades in the Fall of 2017 (rising 10th–12th graders are welcome to apply as Junior Counselors)

  • We offer CIT programs in both Brooklyn and Manhattan (see below), and CITs commit to a two-week session. We have limited one-week sessions available as well.

  • We place one CIT per classroom, with our CJ Junior (6-7 year old) girls. This CIT helps alongside the instructor and counselor. 

  • CITs are at the program from 8:30am–3:45pm. They have responsibilities like greeting girls in the morning, helping girls with their projects in class, setting up snacks, etc, and being supportive and enthusiastic members of the group!

  • CITs are required to attend one day of training at our Gowanus workspace (dates listed below). They have fun and learn a lot!
