Become a Virtual TEEN Volunteer!

Due to Covid-19, and the need for social distancing, Ocean County Library is modifying our in-person volunteer program to an engaging online format. This fall, we are offering teens the opportunity to earn community service hours online. This online modified volunteer program still allows teens the opportunity to serve their community while learning, sharing and having fun at the same time!

Whether working to fulfill a school commitment, to build a job resume, or to serve the community, Ocean County Library offers opportunities for teens ages 12 to 18. Plus it's a fun way to earn community service hours!
