Student Volunteer Program: Greenwich Library Student Leadership Council

students devising a practice SAT at Greenwich Library

As shown in the above photo, Greenwich students put together this practice SAT test September 2012 to help prepare fellow students for the real thing. Read how you can do similar programs below.

The Student Leadership Council offers volunteer opportunities for Greenwich students grades 8-12 to serve as Student Leaders in exchange for community service hours. Student Leaders use Greenwich Library resources and facilities with the objective of creating relevant programs for middle and high school students.

Among the requirements and benefits of being a Student Leader:

  • Plan, implement, and evaluate Library programs and events. These can include author talks, concerts, book clubs, summer reading, tutoring, writing workshops...
  • Earn community service credit for each hour of service.

If you and your friends want to offer a program at the Library this is your chance. Meetings are scheduled the first & third Thursday of each month from 7-8 pm and meet in Teen Central on the second floor of the main Library.

Starting in October 2015, we will be launching a second ongoing Student Leadership Council group to be comprised of students from grades 6-8. This will be a new and exciting opportunity for middle school students to take part and help improve library services for themselves and the community. This group will meet on designated Wednesday nights (check our online calendar & social media for dates) each month.

Volunteer and make your mark as a Leader!
