SJPL Invites You to Volunteer this Summer!
Become an SJPL Summer Volunteer
Make an impact in your community. Register to be an SJPL summer volunteer!
Summertime is a welcome break for school-goers all over the United States. It’s also a time when many students lose learning ground, access to healthy meals, and opportunities to build skills and confidence. The San José Public Library is looking for teen and adult volunteers wanting to make an impact in their community by devoting between 1-3 hours a week. Assist with our Summer Learning program and our Free Summer Food Program. Two incredibly rewarding programs that greatly benefit from those looking to volunteer.
By fifth grade, low income children without summer learning opportunities are already two to three years behind their peers. As a result, low-income youth are less likely to graduate from high school or enter college.
Sign up for any of these opportunities:
- Summer Learning Ambassador: Help your community while interacting with local youth and families. We're looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help promote our Summer Learning program.
- Free Summer Food Program Assistant: Help ensure that local children get the nutrition they need to succeed with SJPL's Free Summer Food Program. Last summer the San José Public Library was able to provide over 7,000 meals to children and families. Volunteer to distribute nutritious food to neighborhood children anytime during the week.
Volunteer - Make a difference!
Volunteer with San José Public Library and encourage lifelong learning while meeting new people with shared interests and your commitment to community.
