Become a Vegas PBS Volunteer!
Vegas PBS volunteers are as diverse as our programming. They include people of all ages and backgrounds. Some can spare a lot of time; others only a little. But one thing they all have in common is their eagerness to serve the Vegas PBS community. At this time, we are accepting applications for participation in our Volunteer Program.
Volunteer assignments include answering phones during our on-air fundraising drives, assisting with special events, and so much more! If you are interested in becoming a Vegas PBS Volunteer, please complete our Volunteer Application. Once your application has been processed, you will be invited to attend a New Volunteer Orientation which are held quarterly. Thank you for your interest in Vegas PBS.
New Volunteer Orientation
You can’t become a volunteer without learning the ropes, so every three months or so we hold an orientation to bring newcomers into the fold. This event focuses on an overview of our procedures and volunteering opportunities. On September 1st, 13 new volunteer prospects were welcomed by General Manager Tom Axtell and treated to a tour of our television studios and our Educational Technology Campus. This was followed by a presentation on the many ways one can get involved as a volunteer with Vegas PBS.
Many people may believe that volunteering for Vegas PBS is limited to pledge weeks, however we can use your help every week of the year. And if you have a friend with a little extra time on their hands, we’d love to have them share it with Vegas PBS also. Just have them fill out the volunteer form online.
Volunteer Tour Docent
One of the most exciting volunteer opportunities at Vegas PBS involves leading tour groups from a wide variety of organizations such as service clubs, school groups, Boy/Girl Scouts, church and social communities through the amazing facilities of Vegas PBS. During the first seven months of this year over 500 individuals were guided across our campus to learn about the incredible services offered by Vegas PBS.
We are looking for a few good men and women to join our cadre of volunteer docents. Knowledge and smiles are the primary qualifications for the job, and we gladly provide the knowledge for free. Sign up or see other volunteer docent opportunities including the training schedule and upcoming scheduled tours to shadow and volunteer. Sign up to become a Vegas PBS volunteer.
Let's face facts: we wouldn't be here without you. This year alone you and your compatriots have given 2,600 hours of volunteer time to keep things at this station running smoothly. If you're one of the regulars, or even one of the once-in-a-whiles, we can only say thank you again and again and again. If you don't find yourself in the previous sentence, there are always plenty of opportunities available. Maybe you just haven't thought about us for a while. Or maybe you'd like to try volunteering at something other than your usual job.
