Library teen volunteers
For each book trailer submitted, you will receive 2 volunteer hours. Your application is not complete until you receive the email. Current, active volunteers can log into their volunteer service record for updates and schedules. Book reviews should be about words and should be your own original thoughts. Applicant interviews and reference checks will take place following orientation attendance. They sign up for a weekly day and time and agree to work that schedule every day for 8 weeks, with exceptions of course for vacations and camp, etc.
When I came to BWBL I tweaked the teen volunteer program just a little and made it a requirement that the volunteers had to meet with me on a quarterly basis so that we can touch base and they become a de facto teen advisory board. Having regular programming has proven to be difficult here because there are very few hours that work well for the teens, but having a volunteer program allows them to interact with the library on a regular basis according to their personal schedules. Simply filling out an application does not guarantee acceptance to volunteer. These teens are trying to get volunteer hours for things like Avid and the National Honor Society, and they need a lot of hours. We get some of the same advantages of programming — teens are developing a relationship with their library — but in a way that works best for the teens in THIS community. The orientation is an information sharing session where current volunteer opportunities are presented.
Volunteer Your Time - Chandler Public Library
As I am sure you are aware, some staff are better at dealing with and interacting with teens than others and I want to minimize any potential negative interactions. I am trying to start my teen volunteer program right now. It is simply a time to learn about what volunteer roles are available within the Library. If the issue occurs subsequent that coaching, the contract signed by the teen allows BWBL to terminate the relationship at any time and we will do so. Deadline for Teen Service Award: February 1,
Teen Volunteer Application. The Coralville Public Library is very proud of its talented and diverse group of volunteers. Did it have an awesome cover? I have teen volunteers who are doing a variety of clubs, sports, and volunteering at other organizations. Book reviews should be original and thoughtful. Have a periodic training meeting so that teen volunteers can get to know one another, you can make sure everything is running smoothly and everyone is happy, etc.
