ENC is looking for responsible high school students that love nature and working with children to be a part of the Leader in Training (LIT) program for their upcoming Summer Camps at the ENC in Newport Beach and at the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary in Modjeska Canyon. What is a Leader in Training? “LITs” are amazing high school students that help with Nature Camps. This is a perfect opportunity for volunteers who enjoy working with children to earn community service hours. Spend time with like-minded peers and gain experience and responsibility supervising young children. It provides an excellent experience to include on a resume or college application.
