Please complete this application form if you are in grades 6-12 and are interested in joining the Teen Volunteer Corps at the Carmel Clay Public Library.

Teen Volunteer Corps members assist the library with a variety of programs and activities each month.

If you are accepted as a volunteer you will be added to our mailing list, and you will receive a monthly email listing the volunteer jobs available throughout the library.

Throughout the year, the library's needs vary, and due to the high level of participation, we are not able to immediately accommodate everyone who is interested in volunteering, especially on short notice.

We also cannot guarantee a certain number of volunteer hours for each applicant.

Any volunteer who fails to follow directions or inadequately performs assigned tasks will be dismissed.

Please complete this form and click CONTINUE to submit.

Applicants must bring a printout of the Volunteer Agreement and Release Form signed by a parent or legal guardian to their first shift.

This form will be emailed to them after they have been accepted to the program.
