Board Opportunities

Advisory board members serve on a volunteer basis only. We feel it is important to bring librarians together in support of teen literacy and the arts. Not only do we feel it is important for teens to have free and public access to magazines like Teen Ink, but we also believe that librarians are key in inspiring, engaging and educating young readers.

There are no financial obligations, time commitments or meetings. Board members can participate in any of the following ways:

  • Librarian Surveys - Periodically throughout the year, we rely on our board members for suggestions and feedback. Surveys range from email exchanges, informal telephone chats, to brief written questionnaires. This input helps us continuously improve our publications to better meet the interests and needs of both you and your young adult readers.
  • References - We believe the best resource for a librarian is another librarian. Our board members are available to answer your questions and/or to discuss their own experiences with Teen Ink and to share ideas on how best to use the magazine for special events, etc.
  • Special Projects - Occasionally we have projects for which board members can volunteer their time. Examples include the development of a Librarian's Guide which we hope to produce this Summer and a Library Recommended Book List. Participation is completely voluntary and time commitment is up to the individual librarian.
