Become a VolunTEEN
"I'm a teen, can I volunteer at the library?"
The VolunTEEN Corps is a community service initiative that offers middle and high school students an opportunity for civic involvement. The VolunTEEN Corps consists of two programs that focus on different goals; these programs are the Frisco Action Board and the Frisco Advisory Board.
VolunTEENs will enrich personal skills, enhance job skills and gain work experience that can be included on resumes. VolunTEENs develop a better understanding of city government, serve as ambassadors within the community, and accumulate community service hours for school.

FRISCO ADVISORY BOARD
Grades 6 – 12
The purpose of the Frisco Advisory Board is to allow teens in the Frisco area to give feedback to the Library including an opportunity to shape future classes and the direction of teen services in general. It is also a place to develop leadership skills, get to know fellow teens, and work collaboratively on a variety of projects. VolunTEENs will accumulate service hours for their contributions to the Frisco Advisory Board.
