The Pierce County Library Foundation is inviting teens interested in learning hands-on job skills, gaining leadership experience, earning community service, or enhancing job or college applications to apply to join the Pierce County Library System’s Teen Volunteer League. Applications are being accepted now through June 10.

The league is open to teens aged 14 to 18, and is offered at all Pierce County Library locations. Students will volunteer at their library June to August. Through volunteering, students gain experience and hands-on job skills training by assisting with library activities and special projects.

“The Teen Volunteer League is a super opportunity for teens, benefiting them as well as benefitting the Library System and the communities where the teens live,” said Pierce County Library executive director Georgia Lomax. “The teens will learn valuable real-world skills and see first-hand their impact in giving back to their community.”

Volunteers must commit at least eight hours of volunteer time during the summer months. Given that available volunteer opportunities are limited based on location and positions, those who are interested are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. The library will fill positions as it receives applications, keeping the limited opportunities open until filled.
