So I found out volunteering at your local library doesn't earn you volunteer hours. But could I list my Library on my resume? I want to volunteer so I can help, but also need some good stuff on my resume. I've only got one job so far on my resume.
Lots of the time, I hear this complaint; "Job's want experience but to get experience, I need a job, wtf do I do!?" And people often assume that paid job is the only way to get experience. Nope, some of the best things that used to be on my resume (prior to getting proper jobs) was voluntary experience, it looks good if you can sell yourself well in interviews and on paper.
So yes, use that on your resume.
@ccraft: If you want to help out there definitely do it, you can put it on your resume and they can contact them if needs be. Even if they don't contact them it shows commitment and that you're motivated and employers like people that are willing to give up free time lol.
Like someone above said you can be vague with the details if you want, but obviously don't lie if it gets brought up in a interview in future.
