Work experience opportunities for teenagers

We're looking for 13 to 24 year olds with a passion for reading to help us run children’s activities, organise events, and help young children develop a love of  reading in local libraries.

Over the summer holidays libraries across Staffordshire will be offering an exciting schedule of events for local children as part of the Summer Reading Challenge. This year the theme is the 'Space Chase', to mark the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing. 

We're offering this fantastic opportunity for your child to get valuable experience which they can add to their further education or job applications, as well as have some fun.

In return for their help we'll offer your child opportunities to -

  • Gain experience to support job and further education applications 
  • Meet new people
  • Help children develop a love of reading
  • Support their local library and community
  • Have their say in what your library offers young people
  • Have fun!

Their volunteering hours can also contribute to Duke of Edinburgh, Arts Award and other accreditations.

For more information or to sign up contact Your Library via the County Council Contact Centre on 0300 111 8000 or pop in to your local library to have a chat.
