DARTS Counselor-In-Training Program

[BSO Education]Program Description:
Counselors-in-Training (CIT) are a vital part of the DARTS program.  During their two weeks on the DARTS campus in Lenox, MA, CIT assist Senior Staff, participate in intensive arts and leadership workshops, coordinate special student activities and travel on half-day excursions to several of the Berkshires' finest cultural venues.  The CIT experience is centered around leadership training and mentoring opportunities, while supporting current DARTS participants during their week at DARTS.

Eligibility Requirements:
The CIT program seeks candidates from within our DARTS alumni who are current high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors, and who have continued their involvement in the arts (chorus, band/orchestra, dance, theatre, visual arts).  Those alumni who have served as a CIT in the past and those who are not authorized to work in the United States are not eligible to apply, and candidates must be sixteen years old by the start of their DARTS session in order to be eligible to be hired as a CIT.

Application Instructions and Hiring Process:
Letters of invitation to apply are mailed out to all eligible CIT each February.  If a student's mailing address has changed since their DARTS attendance, please email the updated address to the DARTS Office at darts@bso.org .
