Did you know every year, KVIE volunteers donate thousands of hours of their time in support of Public Television? Over 300 volunteers keep KVIE running smoothly by providing clerical support in the office, crew during our fundraising drives, and special events staff for activities at the station and beyond.

KVIE counts on support from the community. Volunteer shifts are currently on an as needed basis. Below are some examples of volunteer opportunities:

Frequently Asked Questions

The majority of KVIE’s volunteer opportunities are events based, which occur periodically throughout the year. We are generally not able to provide enough hours in the given time frame to meet a student’s required needs. In such cases, we often refer the individual to other organizations.
Our production department does not generally involve volunteers in the technical aspects of a production. Instead, KVIE will occasionally offer formal internships in Production as well as other departments within the station. Current Internships and Employment opportunities can be found here. If you are interested in experiencing a live, in-studio production, we encourage you to sign up for a phone bank shift, or other on-air fundraising volunteer roles.
Individuals seeking immediate employment should consult our Current Openings listing here. KVIE seeks volunteers who are interested in developing a long-term service relationship with the station. Many of our volunteers have served with us for several years, may be retired, or have existing work in a variety of fields. On certain occasions, employment opportunities have emerged based on station need and volunteer skillset.
