Become a TEEN Volunteer!


During summer, Ocean County Library offers the opportunity to earn community service hours through our Virtual S.A.I.L. program only (Summer S.A.I.L. is currently full). This program allows teen’s the opportunity to virtually serve their community while learning, sharing and having fun at the same time! The program, Service and Achievement in the Library (S.A.I.L.), is open to teens that have completed at least 7th grade. If you have filled in a past Virtual Volunteer application, please resubmit a S.A.I.L. application for the Summer Teen Volunteer hours.

We are no longer accepting S.A.I.L. applications for 2021.


Summer S.A.I.L. volunteer program is full. Volunteer application accepted starting September 1st.
