Volunteering for Young People

Opportunities for Young People

The minimum age to volunteer to work at the library is usually 16. However, from time to time we can provide supervised volunteering opportunities for young people aged 12 and up, for example, students on the Duke of Edinburgh award programme. You can use the form below to apply. Volunteering is a great way to develop social skills in a safe and rewarding environment.

Please note that because we process applications from young people differently from adults, we only accept applications via this form.

Only use this form if you are under the age of 18 or attending school
