Teen Leadership Council is made up of teens who are passionate about making their community better!
The Council is a self-directed group who decide how they want to make a difference.
For example, they can help shape library services for teens and kids by planning programs and putting them into action, by working on projects that benefit others, and by advocating for youth services both at the library and in the community.
Teens in grades 7–12 are eligible to join.
Currently, the Council is located at Spokane Valley Library and meets on the first Wednesday of each month, 5–6pm.
The benefits of joining are many. Here are some examples:
What you do as part of Teen Leadership Council is based on your interests, skills, and enthusiasms as well as those of the other teen leaders involved. So, you get to decide what the Council will do!
Some project ideas include:
These are just some of the possibilities. Ultimately, what the Council accomplishes will be decided by the teens participating.
Teen Leadership Council meets once a month for an hour. Attending and participating in the monthly meetings is an important part of being a member. In addition to meetings, projects might need Council members to work on them for up to 4 hours of additional time per month.
