An Infopeople Webinar

Start Time: Pacific - Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Presenters: Dolly Goyal and Angie Miraflor


  • Are you noticing an influx of teens asking for volunteer hours at your library and you can’t seem to find tasks for them?
  • Have your experiences with teen volunteers been less than positive?
  • Are you the only person in charge of teen volunteers at your library?

Managing teen volunteers can often be a challenge that takes time and dedication. Learn how to effectively engage teen volunteers to benefit your library as well as create positive leadership experiences for them and for you.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Find at least three ways to engage their teen volunteers.
  • Identify the types of volunteers (short term/long term) and properly assign tasks.
  • Find ways to problem-solve common issues with teen volunteers.

This webinar will be of interest to library staff working with teens or managing teen volunteers in both public and school libraries.
