Thank you for your interest in donating your time and skills to KUOW! We rely on volunteers during our on–air membership drives, as well as for ongoing office work throughout the year.
The following volunteer opportunities are available at KUOW:
Answer phones in the studio during the KUOW membership drives (fall and spring) and take information over the phone. Food and drink are provided. This opportunity is very popular and phone shifts fill quickly. We'll announce volunteer sign up to our active volunteer list, on the air and on the web.
Commitment: 3– to 4–hour shifts.
The following volunteer opportunities are arranged as needed. Arrangements must be made with KUOW staff:
We'll train you on our system to enter and revise addresses from mailings as well as enter pledge data. Daytime shifts as pre–arranged. This activity peaks a few times a year.
Commitment: six-month commitment or during membership drives for a limited commitment (it does take time to train, so we'd like to keep you on file as someone trained to work on our database).
We'll train you to answer phones, photocopy and file (whatever we need during peak times). Daytime shifts as pre–arranged.
Commitment: six months.
Drive your own car to pick up food, supplies, etc. Must have a valid Washington State Driver's License and a clean driving record.
Commitment: on–call, with advance notice.
