Join StoryTeen at the Library! Unleash Your Potential

Are you a rising 11th or 12th grader with a passion for early literacy and making a difference in your community? Look no further! The library is calling for enthusiastic teens to join StoryTeen, an exciting unpaid internship program tailored just for you.

Why Volunteer?

Before we delve into the details of this opportunity, let’s talk about why volunteering is so important. Volunteering not only benefits the community but also offers invaluable personal and professional development opportunities. It allows teens to:

  1. Make a Difference: By volunteering, teens can directly impact the lives of others in their community.
  2. Gain Experience: Volunteering provides hands-on experience in various fields, allowing teens to explore their interests and develop new skills. This real-world experience can be invaluable when applying for college or future employment opportunities.
  3. Build Connections: Volunteering allows teens to connect with like-minded individuals and mentors who share their passions. These connections can lead to lifelong friendships, mentorship opportunities, and even potential career pathways.

Now that we understand the importance of volunteering, let’s dive into what StoryTeen has to offer.
