On-Air Fundraising Volunteers

Volunteers answer phones and record pledges of support from generous donors as part of WPBT2’s on-air fundraising drives. Volunteering during our live fundraising drives is a great way to meet new people, experience the thrill of being on a live TV set, and support local public media. Special guests often stop by our TV set to help WPBT2 bring in the contributions. You never know what notables you might run into in our studios!

Volunteer shifts typically range from four to six hours. You must be available for the entire shift in order to volunteer.

Volunteer opportunities associated with our on-air fundraising drives always take place during evenings and/or weekends.
