2020 San Diego staff membersSSP’s Staff-in-Training (SIT) program provides potential staff members with a preview of the life of an SSP summer staff member. Each SIT spends one week with an SSP staff team. Individuals who participate in our SIT program do so voluntarily without pay.

SITs are invited to attend portions of staff training in June to develop their personal leadership skills, and continue throughout their week as an SIT with the mentorship of their staff team.

Anyone with a serious interest in being on staff at SSP should consider signing up for an SIT position. The SIT week provides a transition from the experience of SSP as a youth to the very different responsibilities of an SSP staff member.


SITs volunteer their time for their week of service; they are not paid nor do they pay to participate.


To apply, you must be at least 18 years old and have graduated from high school by June 16th, 2021.

Application Process

Once we receive an application and reference form for a candidate, we will schedule a Zoom interview in May to share more information and schedule the candidate.

If you have any questions about the SIT program, please email Megan.
