KVIE has a long tradition of volunteers donating their time, energy and passion to assist in a variety of ways at the station. Volunteering has taken on different forms over the past 50+ years that KVIE has been in existence, and constantly evolves based on the needs of our station. Presently, volunteers help keep KVIE running smoothly by providing special event assistance for activities, clerical support in the office, and in select roles during our fundraising drives.

 

Opportunities

KVIE counts on support from the community. Volunteer shifts are currently on an as needed basis. Please know that KVIE is not presently scheduling phone bank groups for our seasonal pledge drives. At this time, phone banks will only be scheduled during our fall Art Auction.  Below are some examples of volunteer opportunities:

  • Events crew - KVIE has several, annual signature events (Golf Classic, Art Auction, Antique Valuation Day, Leadership Luncheon, etc.), as well as periodic events (screenings and studio concerts). Individual roles include: alcohol/food service, and greeter/registration/guest relations.
  • Clerical assistance - KVIE has occasional needs for front desk/receptionist support. Front desk volunteers receive training prior to being scheduled for their shift, and shifts are generally divided into approximately 4 hour shifts. 
  • On-Air Fundraising - KVIE utilizes volunteers to run the teleprompter for talent scripts on-air. Additional volunteer roles are needed during our annual Art Auction each fall.

All potential volunteers must have an application on file in order to be considered for any shift. Your information will be added to our volunteer database, and you will receive email correspondence regarding volunteer opportunities.
