On Monday, September 18, the Edge, the White Plains Public Library’s teen library, will hold its first Volunteer Interest Meeting for the “Do Gooders,” a new community service group for teens. “Do Gooders” follows the announcement that The Allstate Foundation awarded the White Plains Public Library a $25,000 grant for teen programs through “Good Starts in the Edge.”
With the launch of “Do Gooders,” teens can earn volunteer hours for school or clubs, or just work to make a difference in their community. The library will provide resources and assist the teens in planning their own projects, such as learning to sew baby blankets for Project Linus or making dog toys for the SPCA of Westchester.
The volunteer interest meeting will be held on Monday, September 18, at 4:00 P.M. in the Edge Media Lab. Teens are invited to bring their ideas to the meeting and help plan the schedule and projects for the fall semester. All teens in grades 7-12 are welcome; no registration is required. Please contact Kathlyn Carroll at 914-422-6945 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
