Teen Advisory Board (TAB)
What is the Teen Advisory Board?
The Teen Advisory Board will play a huge role in helping your library offer a space, programs, and materials that appeal to you and your friends! This group, made up exclusively of 7th-12th graders, meets once a month to brainstorm and work on library related projects. Members will also be given the opportunity to volunteer for a variety of library events. Joining TAB is a great way to gain volunteer hours and leadership skills, and to make an impact on your community. You don’t have to be a Glenside library card holder to be on TAB!
What happens if I'm accepted to the Teen Advisory Board?
TAB typically meets the first Tuesday of each month September 2018–May 2019, from 4:00-5:00 pm An exception to this is the first meeting on Tuesday, 09/10.
- You must volunteer for three library programs outside of the TAB meetings.
- You will provide the valuable service of advising and creating library services by and for Teens.
- TAB members are also the exclusive volunteers for our super fun Halloween Party in October.
- TAB also will collectively get to design and run their own library program.
Why should I join the Teen Advisory Board?
TAB is a great way to get service hours, contribute to your community, and get some experience in a semi-professional setting. You’ll get to flex your creative muscles, and practice communication skills, as well as meet some other really cool teens. Many past volunteers have received recommendation letters for things such as the National Honor Society, or jobs.
I still have more questions!
