YALSA has three short-term member volunteer opportunities. We are looking for:
- One member to conduct an inventory of YALSA’s portfolio of advocacy resources and submit recommendations to YALSA’s Board for improvements by no later than May 22, 2018.
- Three to five members to serve on a virtual taskforce charged with developing a new member Innovation Award. This award will recognize a member who has embraced YALSA’s vision for teen services. The award proposal will be due to the Board for review at our June 2018 meeting.
- Three to five members to serve on a virtual taskforce charged with developing a new Mid-Career Travel Stipend to be used by a YALSA member who expresses need and has not had the opportunity to attend an ALA Annual Conference or YALSA Symposium for five years. The stipend proposal will be due to the Board for review at our June 2018 meeting.
These are three great ways to get involved in the work of YALSA without having to attend in-person meetings or make a lengthy commitment. If you are interested in volunteering for any of these short-term volunteer opportunities, or have any questions, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 28th.
