Teen Advisory Group

The mission of Moorpark City Library’s Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is to assist the Library in creating engaging spaces and programs for teens and promoting the Library to teens and the community of Moorpark. In addition to earning service hours, TAG members will develop leadership skills, gain valuable experience for job and college applications, meet new friends, and make a difference in their community. 

Members earn 1.5 hours of community service for each meeting they attend and can sign up for other volunteer opportunities at the Library.
