Summer 2020 Teen Volunteer Application July 24, 2019by Cody Wassenberg The library will not be taking applications for summer teen volunteers at this time. Please check back here for updates. Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the library! This is the application for teens who wish to volunteer at Manhattan Public Library during summer 2020. Eligibility Requirements:Must be entering 7th-12th grade in fall 2020. Recent graduates are encouraged to apply as an adult volunteer or to check our job openings. Must be available for at least 7 weeks between May 18 and July 31, 2020 in order to be eligible to volunteer. Must be willing and able to volunteer at least 4 hours per week for the 7+ weeks they are available. Application Process: The teen librarian will review applications and contact applicants to schedule interviews during April. In the selection process priority will be given to teens indicating the most availability and scheduling flexibility during the summer reading program, and previous volunteer experience will be considered. Teens who are accepted will need to sign a permissions form and a policy form with a parent/guardian and submit those papers to the library by May 14, 2020. Accepted teens will come for a 1 hour training & orientation session on May 14th or 15th. There will be 2-3 sessions to accommodate teen schedules. Parents/Guardians will not be required to attend the training orientation this year.

Put an X for any days you would absolutely not be able to work. Summer volunteers may work anywhere between 4-18 hours per week, depending on volunteer preference. Shifts are usually 2-6 hours long and may take place: Monday through Thursday: 9 a.m.-9 p.m.; Friday: 9 a.m.-8 p.m.; Saturday: 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sunday: 1 p.m.-6 p.m. The final schedule and number of shifts per person will depend on the number of volunteers in the program, availability of those volunteers, and when staff determines volunteers are most needed. Since the volunteer schedule begins when the library opens at 9 a.m. Monday-Saturday and 1 p.m. on Sundays, please indicate your availability in increments no less than 2 hours long and beginning on odd hours. For example 9-11 a.m. or 5-9 p.m. or 1-6 p.m.List*DayMorningAfternoonEvening What is the maximum number of hours you will be willing/able to work per week?List any dates between May 14, 2020 and July 31st, 2020 that you will be gone on vacation or otherwise unavailable.
