Staffer in Training (SIT)

ASP's Staffer in Training (SIT) program allows those interested in applying for 2015 summer staff to see first hand what a week in the life of the staff looks like. Being a SIT means an individual is applying for 2015 summer staff and will find out by August if they have been hired. SITs go through a week as a temporary member of the staff which means they will do site visits, eat meals with volunteers, sit in on nightly staff meetings, and more. Going through the SIT program is a great way to solidify summer plans early and get a real picture of the responsibilities of a summer staffer. To be eligible to be a SIT, individuals must be 18 (or turning 18 over the summer) and have graduated from high school. Unfortunately at this time, we are no longer accepting applications for our Staffer in Training program. If you are interested in being on 2015 Summer staff, please check back in August for the updated application.
