See below our great volunteer opportunities for teens who need to earn community service hours, as well as adults looking for volunteer opportunites
TEENS: Pandemic Pen Pals
It's so important to connect with others, but increasingly difficult to do so! To replace our popular Reading Buddies program, APL is now offering Pandemic Pen Pals - a great way to earn volunteer hours while helping an elementary school student with their reading and writing, as well as penmanship or typing skills.
Letters from both kids and teens will transmitted via library staff to ensure appropriateness and to protect the privacy and contact details of both pen pals.
If you're interested in volunteering as a Pandemic Pen Pal, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
TEENS: 2020 ReVision
2020 ReVision is a volunteer opportunity for which teens will complete questionnaires and writing prompts about their experience of 2020, and can earn additional hours by interviewing people of different ages and recording their experiences and feeling about this year, the pandemic, and more.
If you're interested in participating in 2020 ReVision. please email us at email@example.com.
Join Aurora Public Library's Teen Advisory Group! We’re looking for local teens to contribute fresh ideas and opinions for our YA programs and collections.
We will meet via Zoom on the following dates: Thursdays, January 7, 21, February 4, 18, March 4, 18; 7-8 pm.
There's no better time to earn volunteer hours, and no better way to do it than by sharing some kindness in our community - especially now, when we need it the most.
To participate in APL Acts of Kindness - SDE, perform a good deed or kind act, then submit a photo and brief description to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also include your first and last name, grade, school, email, and phone number.
