Utilizing teen volunteers in the library can be a rewarding experience for both staff and teens. However it can also be a big challenge: working with teens’ schedules is chaotic, training can be time-consuming, and sometimes supervising the volunteers takes more effort than doing the tasks yourself. After much trial and error, the Delta Township District Library has found successful ways to make teen volunteering a great experience for all. This session will give you tips on how to efficiently manage a teen volunteer force, including recruitment, scheduling, training, supervising, assigning tasks, and volunteer appreciation.
