YA logo-final-web pagesThank you for choosing to participate in the Teen Advisory Group (TAG) of the Augusta Public Library.  This group is a major part of the Young Adults @ Augusta Library (YA@AL) program.  The mission of the YA@AL (pronounced “Ya’ll!”) program is to provide exceptional service to local young adults (ages 11 to 17 years old) through the delivery of quality educational and recreational library media and programming.  The goal is for participants to positively identify their past experiences, nurture skillful decision-making in their current situation, and foster the development of advanced critical thinking skills that will serve them well throughout life.

The group’s primary task is to plan and promote library programs that appeal to teenagers.  In exchange, they receive volunteer hours and credit, a letter of recommendation at the end of one calendar year of service and the opportunity to participate in exciting and free activities not offered by any other local entity.  As many schools and college application processes call for volunteer credit from students, membership in our group is a time-efficient and fun way to fulfill this requirement.

Watch current members of the group talk about why they enjoy participating here:
