Volunteer with WPSU

WPSU volunteers help keep the “public” in public media.

As an extension of our team, volunteers get to:

  • Explore WPSU behind the scenes
  • Meet other volunteers and network with experienced staff
  • Gain beneficial workplace skills
  • Help WPSU fulfill its community education mission
  • Attend the annual WPSU Volunteer Appreciation Celebration event

Businesses and community organizations are also encouraged to volunteer as a TV/FM fundraising group in exchange for on-air recognition.

You can share your knowledge, skill and energy in many ways at WPSU:

  • Answer phones during FM and TV fundraising drives
  • Be a WPSU-FM on-air weeknight or weekend host
  • Help us in the office
  • Lend a hand at an event
  • Mentor and lead a volunteer group
  • Lead stations tours
  • Assist on community productions
  • Suggest a project or fundraising event you would like to work on and we’ll try to make it happen!
