Student Assistant Program
Gain job skills at your Library
The Student Assistant Program provides jobs for high school, G.E.D., undergraduate and vocational school students to gain work experience in a public library. Student Assistant positions are available at the Central Library and branches throughout Seattle.
Who can participate
To be eligible for the Student Assistant Program, you must be at least 16 years old, currently enrolled in high school, college (undergraduate), vocational school, or a G.E.D. program.
Student Assistants work at the Library from 12 to 15 hours per week. Their positions are temporary and can be held for up to two years (if they are enrolled in school). High school students must be available to work for at least four months. Undergraduate students must be available to work for at least three academic quarters.
