What is T.A.B?

The Teen Advisory Board is group of teens who join together with the Young Adult Librarian to help with volunteering opportunities, creating new teen programs, and voicing what they wish to see happening in the YA Space.

What type of commitment is T.A.B?

Once a month we ask that you attend the T.A.B meeting, which is usually an hour. We also ask that you attend at least 5 teen programs throughout the year. Which programs you attend is of course your choice and could be programs you are helping create or ones you just have an interest in.

What if I can’t make every meeting?

That’s okay! We know you are busy and have other commitments, we ask that you try to not miss more than 3 meetings a year. If you can’t make a meeting, but still want to stay in the loop, ask your other T.A.B. members or meet with Miss Alessandra at another time.

What types of programs does T.A.B. create?

That is up to you and your imaginations. Love drawing? Create an art program. love movies? Create a film series. Love Books? Create a book club. Love computers? Create a technology program. Anything you can imagine, we can work together to bring it alive for the young adult community.

Are there other opportunities that are not in-person?

Yes! We will continue to offer virtual volunteer opportunities to Weston teens on an ongoing basis. To find out what virtual volunteering opportunities are currently available please email apetrino@westonct.gov. Virtual volunteering may include creating YA book reviews, YA reading lists or YA book trailers.
