Teen Volunteers Wanted!
So what do you have to do? Start by filling out an application. Applications are also available at the Library as well as at the school media centers. At the end of May, students who have turned in applications will get a phone call notifying them of their shift day and time. For example, every Tuesday from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. You can also choose whether to work only on the first floor (Youth Summer Reading) or only on the second floor (Teen Summer Reading). Students will get a free t-shirt to wear during their shifts and those who volunteer 16 hours or more will get an invite to a special event (no details yet, we're still planning). Will summer vacation or summer camp cause you to miss your shift? No problem! Just pick up another shift any time. Need more reason to volunteer? If you're a parent reading this, it will get your child out of the house and give them valuable customer service and work experience. If you're a student reading this, it will get you out of the house and away from your family for a few hours. All kidding aside, it is a great program for students in grades 6-12 and our staff is flexible and willing to work with teens who are interested in small commitment that can make a big difference.
