DigiLab Youth Advisory Team

GVPL is currently seeking interested Esquimalt youth to work on our up and coming DigiLab Youth Advisory Team.  We are looking for youth who are outgoing, personable, and familiar with technology and the arts. Possible DigiLab activities include: digital art, animation, photography, jewelry making and whatever else the team can dream up. The team will determine volunteer roles for teens to lead DigiLab sessions, plus the technology and other equipment that will be included in the DigiLab. Team members will receive a letter of participation and number of hours volunteered, which would look great in a portfolio! If interested please contact teens@gvpl.ca.
