2020 Summer of Discovery TEEN Volunteer


While we are not able to offer volunteer desk shifts at the libraries this summer, teens can volunteer and earn volunteer hours by helping others in the community along as you follow current recommended safety practices for yourself and others. Examples of eligible volunteering includes making masks, helping a neighbor with yardwork, and reading to siblings or grandparents. Teens can record hours in the Count Me In Boulder system and receive credit for volunteer hours.

You may also gain credit for volunteer hours by joining the Boulder Teen Advisory Board (BTAB) & Teen Chats on Wednesdays from 4:30 – 5:30 pm via Zoom (See Volunteer Application for more information.)

Time Commitment:

We ask that volunteers agreed to provide and record at least 6 hours of volunteer service throughout June, July and early August.
