Announcing a new volunteer opportunity!

I will be making appointments to YALSA’s seven member award juries soon, including:

BWI/YALSA Collection Development Grant Jury

Conference Travel Scholarships Jury

Frances Henne/VOYA/YALSA Research Grant Jury

Great Books Giveaway Jury

MAE Award for Best Literature Program for Teens

Volunteer of the Year Award

Writing Award Jury

Jury appointments run from Nov. 1, 2016 to Feb. 1, 2017. All of the work will be conducted virtually with the bulk of it occurring in December and January. Want more information about the juries? Click on the links above.

This is a new approach to appointing committee members to our member award juries and is in direct response to the summer members’ survey which indicated that YALSA members want more short-term, opt-in, and virtual volunteer opportunities.

Requirements to Volunteer

  • Be a current YALSA member with the available time
  • Be interested in volunteering with YALSA
  • Have relevant experience
  • Have a high comfort level using digital tools such as Google Drive, Skype, etc.
  • Be concurrently serving on three or fewer appointed groups

That’s it!

To Apply

Simply complete the quick 4 question form below by no later than Nov. 1st.

Thanks for volunteering with YALSA!
