COMMUNITY SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES
TEEN Community Service Opportunities for january
FYI: THERE ARE NO ONGOING COMMUNITY SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES AT THE LIBRARY. HOWEVER, I AM GOING TO BE POSTING ANY COMMUNITY SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES I COME ACROSS BOTH AT AND OUTSIDE THE LIBRARY. I AM GENERALLY NOT INVOLVED FOR THOSE SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES OUTSIDE THE LIBRARY, SO IT IS UP TO YOU TO FOLLOW UP AND MAKE THE CONNECTION.
In the community on your own:
1) The Middletown Arts Center is looking for responsible, fun-loving teens, ages 15 and up to help out with their Club Mac, which is a babysitting service for the winter months. There are two sessions coming up; All take place on a Friday from 6-9:00 pm at the Middletown Arts Center. Must be willing to play with the kids so they have fun!
Fri., Jan. 17th-Enchanted Winter Ball- 5:00 pm-9:00 pm
Fri., Jan. 31st- Chinese New Year celebration
Also looking for teens to assist with art classes during the week working with Miss Laurie and Doodle Dude. Fun way to earn hours.

We encourage teens to do programs to show their talents or a new skill; We currently have teen-led art, manga clubs as well as teens teaching American Sign Language instruction. We’ve had teen-led open mic nights, teen musical performances, teen improve and a teen led writing club is also in the works. If you have a special talent or interest, feel free to be in touch so we can make a performance happen.
Teens interested in being added to the community service opportunity e-mail distribution list can e-mail teen librarian, Ellie Strbo at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you.
There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
