Teen Volunteer Opportunities

The South Huntington Public Library offers Teen Volunteer Opportunities throughout the year for SHPL patrons in grades 6-12.


Volunteer Opportunity (grades 6-12)

This is offered 1-2 times a month. To find out about registration and program details see our newsletter or online calendar.

Teen Advisory Board (grades 6-12)

The South Huntington Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is an active volunteer organization that works on behalf of the library's Young Adult community. Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at 7pm from September to June and attendance at these meeting qualifies as community service. No registration required. Additional opportunities for community service in our library are presented at these meetings. These opportunities are available only to those who have completed a 'Volunteering at the Library' workshop and are in grades 7-12.

Volunteering at the Library (grades 7-12)

A workshop/ training session to learn about volunteering for various programs at the library and then have an opportunity to sign up for them at our monthly Teen Advisory Board meetings! This workshop gives one hour of community service only the first time you take it.


There are many local organizations that also offer teen volunteer opportunities. Teen volunteer criteria will vary based on the scope and nature of the organization. Be sure to find out the following information:
