We are looking for youths between the ages of 12-19!
Do you have access to a computer and a reliable internet?
If you are interested in learning new skills, open to new opportunities, and have strong communication skills then the Tweed Public Library has an exciting opportunity for you!
We have some virtual volunteer opportunities you may be interested in. All you have to do is simply share a few hours of your time. This program will help you build your resume, collect community service hours for school and help us maintain community connections in new and innovative ways, all from the comfort of your home!
Please click on the links below for a description of the opportunities available-
- Virtual Reviewer – Write Book & Media Reviews
- Virtual Writer Artist or Musician – Creative Writing (short stories and poetry), Art (painting, drawing, photography etc.) or Music (write, perform or record music)
- YA Collection Development – Research and make purchase suggestions for new and upcoming releases for the Young Adult Department
To get started, please fill out the Youth Virtual Volunteer Application. You can absolutely volunteer in more than one role and at more than one time. Once you have completed your application, we will contact you with instructions on how to submit your projects. Please read the job description for each role to ensure your submissions follow our library guidelines.
We will respond to you as soon as possible. The library is closed Sundays and Mondays, which can delay response if you complete the application on the weekend.
The goal of the program is to help prepare virtual volunteers for their first job(s), as well as to promote local talents, bring enjoyment to library patrons and build positive relationships between youth and our community. We feel that the more responsibility that our virtual volunteers have in successfully completing their tasks, the better prepared you will be when you apply for jobs and enter the workforce. When at all possible, it should be the volunteer themselves to call, email, organize and initiate! Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Ontario G1 Driving Test Simulator
The official site for the Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) has NO complete G1 sample tests, and only 8 sample test questions. That's not enough to provide you with the practical experience you need. To help you achieve that practice, we have created 11 free practice tests and a G1 Test Simulator. These tests will provide you with experience answering the same types of questions you’ll find on the real test: each test is based on the MTO Driver’s Handbook, uses the same method of grading, and covers the same driving topics used by the MTO. You’ll be ready to breeze through your official exam on the very first try when the big day arrives.
Volunteer at the Library
Every student must complete a minimum of 40 hours of community involvement activities as part of the requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).
