What are Leaders In Training (L.I.T.s)?

Leaders-in-training (L.I.T.s) are high school volunteers who support our summer camps for kids. They work closely with our instructor team in leading 3 one-week-long daily STEM summer camps with up to 20 youth by creating a hands-on and dynamic learning environment. L.I.T.s are also expected to be in attendance for 4 days of training prior to the start of the summer season, and to be in attendance at weekly Friday afternoon meetings in July and August.

Grade Levels: Students going into Grade 10, 11, or 12 in September
We encourage students who will be entering Grade 10 or above in the fall to apply. However, preference will be given to students entering Grade 11 or 12 in the fall. University students will not be considered for this position.

A full description of the position can be found here.

 

Become a STEM Ambassador

Upon successful completion of the Leader-in-Training Program, the L.I.T.s are invited, and encouraged, to remain in the program during the fall and spring terms as STEM Ambassadors for their communities. They will become part of the STEM Ambassador Council, which acts as a bridge between Geering Up, UBC APSC, and high schools in BC through the sharing of ideas and improvement of outreach initiatives.
