are you a rising 10th-grader? join us as a volunteer!

applications currently closed

We are not currently accepting Counselor applicants for Brooklyn locations. If positions become available, we will re-open the process on April 15th.

volunteer program overview

Our volunteer program is designed specifically for rising 10th-graders. The volunteer position is a stepping stone between our CIT position (for rising 7th-9th graders) and Jr. Counselor position (for girls entering 11th grade and at least 16-years-old at the time of camp).

Volunteers have slightly more responsibilities than CITs and are building experience towards a counselor position. It offers more flexibility of scheduling than a counselor position, and there is no fee associated with it, as with the CIT program.

This is an un-paid two-week commitment, and participants receive a certificate of completion and a letter of reference. Participants may also receive community service hours, if this is something that their school accepts or requires.

It is a great opportunity for girls to help younger students and to contribute and grow as part of a strong group.

Please read below for more information and how to apply.  

Very Sincerely,

what you will gain


leadership skills


certificate of completion

what is expected


Volunteers have real responsibilities. We expect you to take the commitment seriously. 


Volunteers are expected to be fully engaged with the camp group. There are specific times for breaks and cell phone use, however, volunteers are to keep their phones stored away during all camp activities.


Volunteers 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!

openness to learning

The volunteer experience is a learning and growing one! The camp staff is there to support you in that.

one day training

Volunteers are invited to attend one day of training at our Gowanus workspace.
