Teens Earn Volunteer-Service Hours At Libraries’ Ya Advisory Councils
Aug 17, 2022
Fort Bend County Libraries offers programs specifically designed for high school-aged teens in grades 9 through 12. The programs provide fun and challenging opportunities for these young adults, who are also encouraged to become active participants in designing and orchestrating new activities for teens in the library system.
Teens can earn volunteer-service hours by participating in FBCL’s Young Adult Advisory Councils, where they can express ideas, help organize upcoming activities, and suggest new programs and books that would be of interest to teens at the library.
The August schedule of Young Adult Advisory Council meetings is as follows:
- Mission Bend Branch Library – Tuesday, August 9, 4:00 pm, Meeting Room.
- Cinco Ranch Branch Library – Wednesday, August 17, 4:00-5:00 pm, Conference Room.
