So you think you want to volunteer for YALSA…
If you think YALSA as opposed to ALA is a softer option for volunteering your professional, think again! These people are dedicated. Youth services is a calling and so is throwing your hat in the proverbial ring. It’s a ring not of doom, but a multi-ring circus, and your committee chair is the ringmaster. But wait! Don’t walk away yet! There is hope for the more casual contributor. And indeed some of the smaller, less time-consuming contributions may in fact lead to bigger and better things.
