Off-site Opportunities for Teen Volunteers

Teen Volunteers

Teens, ages 14-18, can volunteer off-site with the San Antonio Public Library! (While Teen Services supports ages 13-18, the City of San Antonio requires volunteers to be at least 14 years of age.) If a teen is too young to volunteer, or isn't a good fit for the library, please share Dream SA's volunteer opportunities list with them.

Ideally, teen volunteer opportunities are an extension of the services we provide to teens. In addition to the weekly clubs, teens seek out their local library for experiences. Get to know the teens who you get the opportunity to speak to, ask questions to see what they are interested in, and keep the Teen Participation Matrix in mind. You can customize the volunteer opportunities available based on the interests and skills of the individual.
