Become A Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at KCUR! Volunteering is a terrific way to show your support for the station.

Currently, we are looking for volunteers to help us during our Membership Drive. Our 300+ volunteers are vital to making our membership drives a success.

KCUR volunteers answer calls with a friendly voice, take pledge and payment information accurately and answer questions from our listeners — all while ensuring that our members have a great “pledging” experience.

We do require all volunteers to attend a training session before each membership drive and commit to at least one 2-3 hour shift during the membership drive. They must also be comfortable:

  • using a phone with headset
  • entering data in real-time from callers on a web-based computer entry screen
  • representing KCUR to the general public
  • working closely with other volunteers in a fast-paced environment, often intermixed with slow periods.

We occasionally need clerical help or assistance with special events. Currently, we do not have any volunteer needs on a daily or weekly basis.
