Are you between the ages of 12 and 19 years old?
Do you have access to a computer and reliable internet?
Do you have strong communication skills and are open to learning new skills and undertaking new opportunities?
Then we have an opportunity for you!
By sharing a few hours of your time, you can boost your resume, collect community service hours for school and help us maintain community connections in new and innovative ways, all from the comfort of your home! The Stirling-Rawdon Public Library has several virtual volunteer opportunities you may be interested in!
The following opportunities are available at this time:
- Virtual Reviewer – Write Book & Media Reviews
- Virtual Director – Create Library Trailers
- Virtual Producer – Create Book Playlists
- Virtual Promoter – Create Read-alike Lists or Videos
- Virtual Writer Artist or Musician – Creative Writing (short stories and poetry), Art (painting, drawing, photography etc.) or Music (write, perform or record music)
- Create your own program
- YA Collection Development – Research and make purchase suggestions for new and upcoming releases for the Young Adult Department
To get started, please fill out the Youth Virtual Volunteer Application. In your application, you’ll have the opportunity to let us know which roles you are interested in. You can absolutely volunteer in more than one role and at more than one time. Once the application has been completed we will contact you with instructions on how to submit your materials and creations and a checklist to follow to ensure your submissions follow our library guidelines.
Please note that we will respond to you as soon as possible. The library is closed Sundays and Mondays which can delay response if you complete the application on the weekend.
This program strives to prepare our virtual volunteers for their first job(s), as well as to promote local talents, bring enjoyment to library patrons and build positive relationships between youth and our community. We feel that the more responsibility that our virtual volunteers have in successfully completing their tasks, the better prepared you will be when you apply for jobs and enter the workforce. When at all possible, it should be the volunteer themselves to call, email, organize and initiate! Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
