Reporting on the Teen Volunteer Fair

 a great success!

On October 27, the Arlington Teen Network Board hosted the 2012 Teen Volunteer Fair at Central Library, along with Volunteer Arlington and the Library.  


Eleven organizations were there to share information about service opportunities. A total of 202 people participated, about half of which were teens. There were 37 middle-schoolers in attendance and 43 high schoolers. W-L and Yorktown students were the majority attendees, with Wakefield and Williamsburg students in lowest attendance. Most teen attendees found out about the event through parents, school, and libraries.


Teens check-in for the fair and get a free bag!

TNB member Jackie Verrechia did a terrific job organizing the fair, with the help of her committee and TNB. 
Attendees could
 make Thanksgiving cards to send to soldiers. More than 50 people made cards, and it was great to have a concrete service project to do at the fair. (It was also a great way to include younger siblings who attended.)

Also thanks to Susan
 Stolpe of Volunteer Arlington for participating.
