Teen Advisory Board

The Portland Public Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a volunteer and engagement opportunity for middle and high school students. Gain leadership experience and to work together within a large organization to enact change!

This group meets the first & third Wednesday of every month at 2:30 PM in the Teen Library and is facilitated by the Teen Librarian and Teen Senior Library Assistant. In addition to meetings, TAB members have many opportunities for additional volunteer hours at the library assisting with Teen programming and other library events and activities. Teens can join at any point during the school year but must commit to attending at least 6 meetings over the course of the year to be considered members.

Download the TAB application or stop by the Teen Desk at the main library to pick one up! For more information, call the Teen Desk at (207) 871-1700 x 773 or email Ms. Sarah at ruggiero@portlib.org
