Volunteering: Opportunities for Teens

Due to COVID-19 ALL onsite volunteer activities have been canceled until Kent District Library resumes full service. We are exploring virtual volunteer opportunities and updates will be posted periodically. Please check VolunteerHub periodically for new opportunities as they become available. Call 616-784-2007 or email Volunteer@kdl.org for more information. 

Opportunities for older high school students (age 14 and up)

Bookmobile Crew and KDL Mascot Crew and Selected Branch Opportunities (year-round)

KDL has fun and engaging ways for teens to get volunteer experience that counts toward their service learning hours. Experiences are community outreach-oriented and offer Teens the opportunity to develop their communication and engagement skills. 

Examples of Teen Opportunites include but are not limited to: 

Bookmobile Crew

Bring KDL Excitement for reading and learning outside the library with the Bookmobile! Older Teens will use engagement skills to interact with kids and parents at Bookmobile sites. Share knowledge of KDL programs and services (you will be trained!) and your favorite aspect of the library to get people talking and having fun. 

KDL Mascot Crew

Ever look at professional sports team mascots and think, "Wow! That looks like a blast!" Me too!  Learn how the pros do it and get lots of practice on the KDL Mascot Crew. Basic Mascot Training will be provided at orientation. Put THAT on your college apps!

Contact  volunteer@kdl.org or 616-784-2007.
