Volunteer Opportunities for Teens/Tweens
There are currently two types of volunteer positions open for ages 11-18–book buddies and garden volunteers.
Book Buddies, or our Teen Buddy Book Club, is a program that pairs kids one-on-one with a teen role model. These volunteers spend time virtually helping their buddy gain confidence reading, while they practice their literacy skills and get to know them.
tend to the teen garden at the library, but do so on their own schedule, without others around. Possible responsibilities include watering, checking nitrogen levels, and weeding. All volunteers will be able to take vegetables home! Find out more at https://www.pawlingfreelibrary.org/teenprograms/
As we continue our reopening process, additional volunteering opportunities will be considered. We hope to have volunteers helping in additional children’s programs regularly as soon as it is safe and we are allowed.
Because we are hosting summer programming virtually and have to limit the number of people in our building, the library is not able to hire Leadership Interns this summer. Leadership interns will return next summer if it is feasible to host programs in person at that time.
