The Teen Volunteer Program accepts volunteers 13 and up. All teen volunteers must complete the online volunteer application. In addition, you need bring to orientation the required volunteer agreement form with a parentâ€™s or guardianâ€™s signature and a letter of recommendation. We support Stoney Point High School's Tigers in Service program and Round Rock High School's Dragon Force program.
The letter of recommendation should be on letterhead from a recognized organization such as a school or church. It should reflect the applicantâ€™s skills and attitude.
The Library benefits tremendously from the contributions of its teen volunteers. In return, we hope they learn to work in a professional environment with confidence and skill. We provide qualifying teens with letters of service for any organization that requires proof of community service.
