Library Offers Year-Long Program for Teen Volunteers

Due to the demand for more teen volunteer opportunities and the success of the Junior Volunteer program, the Vernon Area Public Library is implementing a year-long online teen volunteer program.

This program is designed for teens in grades 7-12 and will provide them an opportunity to earn volunteer hours from home. Students do not need to fill out applications or go through any training. There is also flexibility because teens can volunteer as their schedule allows.
