We are excited to let you know that we have added a new option for high school teens looking to complete service hours in the community here at the library!
We are looking for Teen Tech Coaches to volunteer their time and expertise each Tuesday, helping people learn how to use apps and social media. The program begins on October 4th, and you can register here for a two-hour volunteering shift.
Each coaching session, in the area just outside the Teen Room, will be shared by two volunteers, and will coach two adults (one per hour), and will also be supervised by a library staffer who can help out if needed. You can receive a letter of acknowledgment at the end of each session for your record-keeping.
Teen Tech Coaching is a great opportunity for people who are patient and who might be interested in teaching. This is an easy way to score hours doing something you know and helping others who would appreciate your assistance!
And, returning for its gazillion-th season, Service Saturday, our no-registration-required, drop-in volunteering option for teens in grades 6 and up, returns on October 1st. This popular program is offered on the first Saturday of each month (*except January) from 10 am to 4 pm, through the school year. Volunteers shelve stuff, alphabetize shelves, clean things, and generally help out with whatever needs to be done in the moment. It is perfect for people who need to get those hours completed. As always, you don’t need to let us know you are coming, you can turn up at anytime during the session, and stay for as long as you’d like (or need to!) Bring some music to listen to!
If you are a teen seeking volunteer hours outside of these two options, please email Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our very best to arrange something that works you and the library.
