outdoors? Have you ever thought of working in a day
If you said yes to these questions and are currently
in 10th or 11th grade, the Counselor Training Program
is available for you. This 8-week training course offered
by the ‘ J’ will have a presentation by a community expert
each week. The presentation will include open discussion,
role pla^ng and actual work experience. Each partic

All participants are required to attend each CTP

we’re looking for quality people who believe they can
provide expert leadership, guidance and friendship. If
you want the opportunity to assist youngsters in their
continued development in areas of skill acquisition and
social/personal growth, we have that opportunity. If you
have a genuine love for children and want to ^ part
of a very satisfying experience, the “J” has that
