Teen Volunteers

NEW! Get Volunteer Hours for Social Media and Reviews

COVID19 has made it difficult to volunteer in-person. Now you can earn community service hours by submitting a photo, video, or other content for us to add to CPL’s social media pages! Ideas for submissions include book reviews, artwork, poetry, short stories, personal essays, photos or video of food you’ve cooked or baked, or any other creative idea you have for content. (Not all submissions will be used on our social media, and submissions including photos of people are not allowed.) Each submission will be awarded 2 community service hours.
