VOLUNTEERING……What’s in it for you?
- review volunteer opportunities
- ask for a Volunteer Information Package, which includes the application, at the main circulation desk at the Library, or,
- download and complete the Volunteer Application form and email it or drop it off, to the attention of Kate Schillings
- Questions? Contact Kate Schillings, Manager of Volunteer Services at 519-271-0220, ext. 122, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
You’re expected to volunteer……so why not make the most of it?
Did you know that volunteering…
- can be fun
- is a great way to connect with other people
- can be an easy way to to start exploring some career paths that might interest you and learn some job-related skills
- looks great on a resumé
- helps you to be more aware of what’s going on in your community, and of the people in it
So, what do you think you want to get out of volunteering? Spend some time thinking about it…for example:
- do you want to work with other youth/teens? seniors? children? persons with special needs?
- could you volunteer at a place where you could “try on” a possible career
- do you want to work outside (sports, gardening, summer camps, etc.) or inside (library, community organization, art gallery, office, etc.)
If you think you’d like to do some of your volunteering at the library, check out our Volunteer Services page to:
- learn what volunteers do here
- download the application & checklist
But, wherever you are going to apply to volunteer, don’t leave it to the last minute… volunteer openings aren’t always available on demand.
There is an exciting new opportunity to be part of a Teen Advisory Group (TAG). This group will meet here in the library on 4 Wednesdays over the summer (Jul 5 & 19, Aug 2 & 16) from 1:00 to 3:00, and then monthly come the fall. This is a great chance to engage in the creation of and carrying out of teen programs both in and out of the library. Contact Kate right away if you are interested.
