Teen Summer Volunteer Projects

Summer Teen Volunteer Projects – Give 1 Hour, Get 1 Hour

Want to give back to your community? Need service hours for a club or organization? Volunteer with us this summer by completing an independent service project.

Choose up to one project a week to earn up to one service hour per week between June 1 and August 6. One completed project = one service hour. Do only one project a week. Submit projects as you complete them. 

Each week that you complete a project and submit it to the library you will earn a service hour. At the end of the summer, we will write you a service hour confirmation letter for the hours you earned from June to August. You can earn one hour a week for a maximum of 10 hours. Get started today!

  • Card Making –Make handmade cards or drawings to lift the spirits of hospitalized children and others.
