Specialized Teen Volunteer Groups
Sometimes the library is looking for a volunteer with more skills, or more of a commitment or just someone who wants to do more than the minimum requirements.
Teen Volunteer Association (TVA)
Membership in TVA is not required to be a volunteer at the Library. But a current volunteer application must be on file.
The South Brunswick Library offers teens the chance to join the Teen Volunteer
Association (TVA). Similar to a student council, the TVA offers teens an opportunity to create and plan future events for the library to ensure the library is reflecting current teen interests.
If you wish to be considered for membership, please explain why you would like to join the group and what you would bring to the TVA. Meetings are generally on the 1st Saturday of every month, and there are requirements for joining TVA and for maintaining membership.
For more information on the TVA, please check the TVA membership on the website or email Teen Librarian, Saleena Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Board Game Committee
A committee of TVA members who help organize, plan and run gaming events.
Hestia Project Committee
A committee of TVA members who help organize and plan special charitable event drives, library fundraisers from the teens and NJ events for the TVA to participate in so that the teens can help with local causes and events.
Executive Volunteer Association (EVA)
The EVA is a specialized committee forming the official leadership group of the TVA. This committee is made through applications submitted by current TVA members who wish to take on more of a leadership role. For more information on the EVA, please check the EVA membership on the website or email Teen Librarian, Saleena Davidson at email@example.com
EVA is sponsored by Friends of Library
Homework Buddies is peer-tutoring program by High School students. It is a drop in program, open to anyone K-12. Those wishing help must bring homework with them to work on, as students are not teaching subjects that students are not already familiar with. If students need help in a more specific subject, a list of tutors who self-identify as comfortable tutoring in those subjects can be obtained by asking at the Information desk or by emailing Saleena Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Homework Buddies can be found near the Information Desk on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. throughout the school year, beginning on Oct. 1, 2018 through May 31, 2019.
Skilled Volunteer Squad
The Specialized Volunteer Squad is for teens who wish to teach or share their information with their peers. This squad has its own application and criteria for membership, where the students need to prove their ability in their chosen subjects before they are allowed to lead classes. These classes/committees and groups run at various times and on a variety of subjects. If interested in joining fill out the application; if you need more information; email Saleena Davidson at email@example.com
The Skilled Volunteer Squad will meets once a month, alternating Saturdays and Sundays; dates given 2 months in advance. We will try to have the Skilled Volunteer Squad meet on a weekend that does not coincide with that month’s TVA/EVA meetings.
Volunteers attending Skilled Volunteer Squad meetings should have a current Skilled volunteer application on file.
Volunteers will be required to begin attending Skilled Volunteer Squad meetings at least two months in advance of their proposed program launch date. If the program has multiple date, this means they would need to begin attendance from two months in advance of the first instance of the program or class.
