I understand that I am expected to attend Orientation and a Panel Interview for any Dart-Lo teen staff position.
Successful CA's and Buddy candidates will also be expected to participate in the specific CA training on June 14th to learn about expectations, job functions, evaluations, and program components. CA's and Buddies are encouraged to attend other days of staff training (June 11-15) to learn about health care, policies, behavior management, outdoor skills, planning etc.
Successful Unit Staff candidiates must attend all staff training dates.
