Youth Staff-in-Training Program

GUIDE is pleased to announce the release of applications for youth ages 16-18 to join us at GTI 2023 as staff-in-training! This revamped model welcomes 15 youth to join our staff to learn leadership, facilitation and communication skills with the intent that they will graduate and continue to serve on staff with even more opportunities for many years to come!

Opportunities include:

  • Participation in leadership workshops
  • Leading energizers and icebreakers
  • Providing support in various aspects of the program (setup and cleanup of sessions, materials prep, etc.)
  • Active engagement with other GTI staff including participation in program sessions, mentor relationships, Connection Groups and more
  • Connecting with program participants
  • Modeling appropriate behaviors

The Youth Staff-in-Training program is made up of youth leaders who practice good decision-making and live a healthy, substance-free lifestyle by abstaining from alcohol, tobacco and other drug use. Participants will go through an application and interview process, as well as intensive training both before and during the program. These youth should be good role models in their community and ready to experience leadership growth.

  • Age 16 or older by June 8, 2023;
  • Enrolled as high school student for the 2022-2023 school year;
