Open Volunteer Positions


Join us for KFAI's fall pledge drive in the phone room! It's the most important job happening right now at the station. All volunteers--new and veterans--are welcome to answer calls from donors day or night. It's fun and easy! You get to answer phones during your favorite shows, work with other volunteers and staff, enjoy tasty snacks from fabulous local eateries and if you have a car your parking is covered! A veteran volunteer or staff person will give you all the training you need and answer any questions you may have.

3. Did you really read the Letter of Agreement and Terms of Service in the Handbook? They're important, so please do! And...

4. Fill out a New Volunteer Profile so that KFAI may keep in touch with you.

How can I get my own show on KFAI?
The ideal first step is to become an active volunteer by getting started in a position and being sure we have your contact information. You are then eligible to take free training classes that can help prepare you to become a programmer. Once you have completed basic classes, you will be in a better position to apply for program openings. Please note, you can apply for your own program before you become an active volunteer. In the event of a contest for an open time slot, however, more weight is given to current volunteers' proposals.

What do KFAI volunteers do?
Nearly everything! Volunteers produce programming, work in the music library, represent the station at events, participate in committees, create station promos, contribute to the web site, and much more.
