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.
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 .
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. 1st, 2019 through May 31st, 2020.
Teen Voices in Alliance (TVA)
Membership in TVA is not required to be a volunteer at the Library, yet a current volunteer application must be on file.
The South Brunswick Library offers teens the chance to join the Teen Voices in Alliance (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.
