Pierce County teens hoping to learn hands-on job skills, gain leadership experience, earn community service, and spruce up job or college applications are encouraged to apply to join the Pierce County Library System’s Teen Volunteer League.

Applications are being taken through June 10.

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

Participating in the Teen Volunteer League requires teenagers to commit at least eight hours of volunteer time during the summer months. The Library System encourages interested teens to apply as soon as they can, because available volunteer opportunities are limited based on location and positions. The Library System will fill positions as it receives applications, keeping the limited opportunities open until filled.

The Pierce County Library Foundation sponsors the Teen Volunteer League.
