Our Teen Volunteer Program at CPL matches youth (ages 12 - 17) with a variety of engaging, age-appropriate volunteer opportunities throughout the year and at various branches. Students must attend a volunteer orientation in order to volunteer at CPL. All students interested in volunteering must attend an orientation session. All participants must have a parent/guardian present for the first 30 minutes of orientation.
