Summer Young Adult Volunteer Program

Chester County Library and Henrietta Hankin Branch Library are no longer accepting applications for the Summer Teen Program. Thank you to all of our applicants for your interest in helping the libraries.  Please watch our website for our March 2019 kickoff date for the 2019 summer volunteer program.

The Chester County Library and Henrietta Hankin Branch recruit and place teens as volunteers for the Summer Young Adult Volunteer Program. You must be at least fourteen years old at date of application and going into 9th grade in the next school year. If you are placed, you must be available throughout the summer months and absent for no more than two weeks.  Each student who is placed is assigned one three hour shift, one day per week.  

When you apply to the Young Adult Summer Program, it will provide an opportunity for you to share your talents and skills in a positive way. You can work behind the scenes processing library materials or shelve books; use your organizational skills to help with clerical duties or special projects; demonstrate your creative skills in our Public Relations/Graphics department.  Library volunteering is a great way to fulfill graduation requirements, boost your college resume, and serve your community.  We look forward to hearing from you in March 2019.

Please note: young adult volunteers are recruited and placed only for the summer program at Chester County Library and Henrietta Hankin Branch. Since we receive a high number of applications for the summer program during the March kickoff period, we respond to applicants when the interview process begins and in the order applications are received.
