2022 Teen Virtual Volunteer

The St. John the Baptist Parish Library offers Volunteer Service Hours to our local students in the 8th – 12th Grade. All opportunities are virtual and submitted to our Library's Programming Department. Volunteers must fill out the 2022 application and be approved—forward all applications and projects to Rona Joseph ([email protected]) in the Programming Department. Opportunities may be completed by individuals or as group projects. If hours are used for school requirements, the volunteer's responsibility is to make sure the school accepts these hours as volunteer credits.

2022 Application

Volunteer Opportunities include:

  • Book Trailers: Create a 30-second video that entices someone to read the book. Pick a fiction, nonfiction, graphic novel, or manga.
  • DIY Tutorials: Create a video or PowerPoint presentation of simple crafts, cooking recipes, STEM activities, Lego building, self-care, etc.
  • Media Reviews: Read, play games, listen to podcasts or watch shows and movies, then submit a review.

  • Trivia: Create a 10-question quiz based on your favorite YA character, book, or series.
