Program Overview We look forward to continuing this tradition and building this amazing program in 2018. A limited number of positions are available to 12 to 18 year-old member youths during the summer programs at the Long Beach Yacht Club. This group of teens will form LBYC’s Leadership Development Team. This group of volunteers supports the Club’s summer Youth Programs by working with those enrolled in Swim and Corinthian programs under the direction of the Program Directors and Coaches. The focus of this volunteer program is to help this age of the Club’s youth develop leadership, organizational and interpersonal skills in the fun yet safe environment of Our Club.
These Leaders will be supporting the summer programs under the direction and supervision of the Directors and Coaches of those summer programs, the organization and oversight of the Leadership Development Team program rests with the Aquatics/Activities Director and Youth Advisory Committee.
Experience the application and interview process - Each week, Teem Members will attend a seminar-style “meeting.” The content of these meetings will focus on life-sills which separate leaders from followers. These meetings are led by adult volunteers and topics include:

o Optional: CPR, First Aid, and Babysitting Training
o Handling Conflict
o Positive Motivation
o Poise and Confidence
