RPL Volunteer Programs

Your opportunity to help create a stronger community

Teen Volunteer Programs

Teen Volunteer ProgramsIf you're a high school student who's interested in working with children (and having fun), RPL can help you get started.  Join our Reading Buddies, French Reading Buddies, Math Buddies or Maker Buddies Programs. You'll be paired with a "Little Buddy"(grade 1-3) to practice reading, do math problems or to do science and technology activities.

Interested in working with older adults? Volunteer for Tech Buddies and teach someone how to use a smartphone, tablet and more!

The Teen Volunteer Programs are offered at branches across the city. We'll help you find the best fit for you!

*Please note: This volunteer opportunity is for High School students.
