What is Teen Volunteer Corps?

The Teen Volunteer Corps was created by the Teen Services Department as a program designed to offer leadership opportunities for teens in Greenwood.  Corps members assist and support the Teen Services Department by brainstorming, promoting, and volunteering at programs, submitting reviews for the library’s social media, and helping make TeenHQ a welcoming space. The service-based group is also a stepping stone for teens interested in joining the HP (Harry Potter) Alliance, a multi-generational volunteer organization comprised of a select group of teens and adults.

Why should I join the Teen volunteer corps?

There are SO many reasons joining the Teen Volunteer Corps is a good idea.  Here are just a few...

  • Earn service hours for school
  • Make a difference in your community
  • Meet other AWESOME teens
  • Plan programs and services that make an impact in the lives of Greenwood teens
  • Librarians write AWESOME scholarship letters and make AWESOME job references

How do I join the Teen Volunteer Corps?

To join the Teen Volunteer Corps you must be 12-18 years of age, have a strong interest in the library, enjoy working with people of all ages and cultures, and be willing to learn new skills. Membership requires regular attendance at meetings, participation in and support of library activities and events, and a sense of fun and adventure.

Teens are invited to submit an application online. Applications will be reviewed and the Teen Librarian will contact enthusiastic and eligible candidates to schedule an in-person interview. The interview is an opportunity to practice important professional life skills.
