*NEW* CIT Training Program

Our new BDC Counselor Training Program is a leadership development opportunity for rising 7th, 8th, and 9th graders led by our Breakaway leadership and staff. Students will be challenged to grow as leaders while developing the skills, knowledge, and Christ-like character for which BDC counselors are so well known.  This four-week session involves a unique development experience, engaging service hours, and pertinent spiritual and professional training for their transitional stage of life. The session directly prepares a way for these students to walk into the counselor role at BDC as soon as they complete 9th grade.
