If you know a teen or young adult (age 16-25) in Kitsap County who wants to share their interests, learning and passion to work with youth in their community, please share with them the following announcement.
Youth voice is something that the library takes very seriously. We know that when teens and young adults have the opportunity to brainstorm, plan, implement and provide feedback to our programs and services, they’re just better. Ok, way better. That’s part of the reason why we’ve created new job opportunities for teens and young adults at all of our locations this fall and throughout 2018. With the support of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, we are hiring Make Do Share Interns to help us co-design and co-facilitate STEM programs for kids and teens. As a result of participating, successful candidates will have the opportunity to build important 21st century skills like critical thinking, work ethic, communication and collaboration.
Ready to apply or want to pass along the news? Here’s what you should know:

How long do the Internships last?
100 hours. We typically schedule interns for five hours per week over a five month period.
Do you need to be a STEM expert to apply?
Absolutely not! Although you’ll be helping with STEM programs, there are many ways to contribute and endless possibilities for program types. Successful interns will be interested in gaining job skills and working with people of all ages and backgrounds.
