"Teens Teach" Program Application
The "Teens Teach" volunteer program provides opportunities for teens ages 13 - 17 to take charge and lead an activity or event at the Huntington Beach Public Library! Use the application below to pitch your program idea to our Teen Services staff, who will work with applicants on the logistics of making their suggestion a reality. We encourage applicants to consider sharing a special skill with others, or host an event that brings community together or provides an educational experience. Previous teen volunteers have taught a needlefelting basics workshop, hosted an Open Mic Night, and even run a Super Smash Bros library tournament!
