From the VolunTeen's point of view!

Grandparents Got Game! : From the VolunTeen’s point of View

I have been volunteering with Grandparents Got Game since 7th grade…and now I’m going to be a junior this year! And from my years of experience in this program I can tell you truthfully this program is so great for grandparents and their grandkids. It is run by amazing Librarians and VolunTeens who really just want kids to have a great time and a place to bond with their grandparents.  Each week we have a new theme which means up to 3 or 4 different crafts a week so there’s a lot for them to choose from. I have loved watching the younger kids, who I used to have to help a lot, grow up through the years and keep returning with their grandparents and are able to do more and more on their own each time. The laughter and smiles of the kids is what brings me back each week and each year, since it’s so rewarding for me and for the grandparents and they see their grandchildren create all these crafts.
Please stop in for the last 3 weeks left of Grandparents Got Game! this summer or if you can’t make it please come for our holiday and spring ones during the year, or just stop in next summer! I’m excited to see some new faces come join this amazing program where grandparents and grandchildren bond and just have fun!

**Librarian Side Note - This is just one of the many programs that we use VolunTeens for throughout the summer and the school year!  Sound like something you might want to help with?  Become a VolunTeen!  While the summer program may be all filled, there are always spots available during the school year.  Click HERE for more info about becoming a VolunTeen!
