Community Service

Community Service Opportunities for Teens:

Community Service Power Hour

Are you closed out of the community service programs scheduled? The Teen Department is trying to accommodate everyone’s needs. If this has happened to you, fill out the form on the Teen section of the Library’s website and we will try to facilitate a community service hour for you. The time that is convenient for the majority will be picked. (Limit 1 per month, and those already registered for a community service event during the month are not eligible.)

Other Organizations with Community Service Opportunities for Teens:

Children’s Maritime Museum

High School Junior Staff Opportunities: High school students from all over the Port Jefferson and surrounding areas work together alongside museum staff to explore community, technology and education at the Maritime Explorium. Through experiences that increase their confidence and independence, our Junior Staff members will grow into valued members of the ME team. Junior Staff members begin with broad interests in science, community outreach or working with children. Each develops their interests into real work experience and skill sets that prepare them for college and careers. High School graduates can be selected to stay on as paid staff or to mentor new Junior Staff Members.
