Leaders in Training
Yes, we are! Our LIT program is for young leaders ages 17-18 who are interested in growing their leadership skills in a fun and supportive online environment. For more information, visit our LIT page here.
The LIT Program runs from July 1-31. This includes mandatory LIT Training from July 1-3 followed by four weeks of ROC. During each week of ROC, LITs will participate in approximately 5 hours/week of placement, LIT programming, and professional development and learning opportunities. The total time commitment is approximately 50 hours spread throughout July.
If you are only able to attend part of the program or have other commitments, please talk to us! We can work with you to arrange your LIT schedule around other commitments that you may have.
In order to successfully complete the LIT Program, you must participate in the mandatory LIT Training (July 1-3), complete 20 hours of placement (over 4 weeks), and participate in professional development in your chosen stream.
Certificates will be mailed to you after the program ends along with the custom LIT-designed t-shirt! Please ensure you have accurate mailing address on your registration form so that we can get them to you.
This is a different program! While our goal is to share many of the same skills and leadership development as we do during the Rainbow Camp LIT Program, this is a different environment which means that this is a great opportunity to be involved in something new!
If you are an LIT this summer for ROC and would also like to be an LIT at Rainbow Camp 2021, we’d love to have you!
LITs will engage in a training period from July 1-3 which will include team building and building leadership skills. Following this, LITs will engage in four weeks of Rainbow Online Connection (ROC) as leaders as well as weekly check-ins with mentors. During this time LITs will also have the opportunity to choose between three streams of professional development: Advocacy, Hype, and Programming.
LITs will have the chance to work with mentors to develop programming for Rainbow Online Connection (ROC). Based on the programs that are planned, there may be the opportunity to lead or co-lead their programs with another staff member or LIT.
