I have been a teen volunteer for the Thousand Oaks Library since 2010 and a member of their Teen Advisory League since 2011. As a member of this advisory league, I help plan activities, organize events, and give reviews on books. I also help sign people up for the library's summer reading program. Over 2,000 kids sign up for the summer activities each year, and I work at the signup and craft tables and help with special programs. This summer I will work as a "lead volunteer," taking on increased responsibilities and helping new volunteers learn their duties.
Cooperation is vital for a successful newspaper. As an illustrator, my job is to highlight someone else's article with a meaningful illustration that sums up their points or calls attention to the article. Sometimes I create an illustration for an article I do not entirely agree with, but I work to create the best illustration for it that I can. My job, just as any other member, is to add to the success of the newspaper. We divide up the articles to be illustrated with drawn images or photographs, knowing that we can count on each other to put out our best effort.
