Volunteering for WKAR is a great way to meet new people and help support your public broadcasting stations!
TV and Radio On-Air Fundraising Campaigns
Volunteers answer phones and take pledges, or perform off-air roles such as coordinating refreshments and training new volunteers.
Participating as a group is a great way for companies and organizations to gain recognition, while investing time to support public broadcasting for the community.
WKAR Special Events
As an active participant in our community, WKAR hosts and participates in special events in mid-Michigan throughout the year. Volunteers help make this community outreach possible by staffing festival booths, assisting with in-studio events and sometimes even donning character costumes to delight our young WKAR viewers.
From time to time WKAR undertakes a special production that must draw on a range of resources -- including the gift of a volunteer's time. Reviewing archival materials, making phone calls, performing library research tasks -- these are just some of the things a volunteer might contribute to a WKAR Special event.
WKAR Radio Reading Service
Reading aloud as a WKAR Radio Reading Service volunteer can be a gratifying experience, bringing a world of printed material to those who are visually impaired or otherwise unable to read print.
Many WKAR volunteers enjoy assisting with preparing mailings, bulk photocopying and other office tasks.
New volunteer opportunities are continually in development. If you don't see an interest of yours mentioned here -- feel free to suggest it. There are many ways you can help WKAR continue to bring quality television and radio to the capital region here in Michigan.
