Here's what teens are saying about the Mission Viejo Library's Teen Advisory Board!
The Teen Advisory Board is a really great thing to be a part of. I get to help plan activities with the library and work with other amazing people who I wouldn’t have met without TAB. Plus, it’s a great way to get service hours. - Sammi C.
Not only has TAB helped me improved my leadership skills, but it’s so much fun meeting new people from different schools and places. - Anusha M.
I never thought that a volunteer organization could have such a large impact on me. Through TAB I have made so many friends and experienced so many new things. I love how interactive TAB is, and I love how Allen always takes what you say into consideration and is so open to new ideas. I am so glad I joined TAB, and I'm looking forward to some more amazing experiences and memories! - Apoorvi S.
Through TAB I get to meeting all types of people can create events that I get to choose and plan. Above all, Allen is a amazing librarian who makes sure your voice is heard while you have fun! - Lilly G.
