Home » High Voltage – Young Volunteers in Libraries
High Voltage – Young Volunteers in Libraries offers a range of exciting volunteering opportunities in libraries for young people of secondary school age up to age 25. As well as being great fun, volunteering will help you develop confidence and give you valuable skills for your education and future employment. You can help with a wide range of activities including:
High Voltage is part of the wider High Life Highland Leadership Programme where accrued hours as a volunteer help you to reap a variety of awards. All volunteers get a High Voltage Volunteer lanyard and t-shirt to wear during sessions.
Highland Libraries Facebook aims to promote the use of library and information services to meet the educational, information, cultural and recreational needs of Highland communities through the use of interactive social media technologies.
Read to Succeed is a parental reading group which will be taking place at Culloden Academy on Thursday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30 pm starting January 17th.
