Volunteer for WHYY
Time is valuable and your help is invaluable! Volunteers from Greater Philadelphia help support WHYY in a variety of functions, including on-air membership campaigns, mailings and office support. It doesn't matter whether you have just a few or as many as 20 hours each week to volunteer — you'll find the time spent here rewarding and of great value to WHYY.
Join WHYY's growing pool of dedicated volunteers and find out how you can help make a difference! To become a WHYY volunteer, contact Betsy Feil at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-351-1261 or sign up today online. If requested, WHYY will ask volunteers to complete the application forms for a Criminal Background Check (CBC) and a Child Abuse History Clearance (CAC) prior to their first day and will cover the cost of each application form.
WHYY reserves the right to request a state CBC and CAC upon acceptance into WHYY's volunteer program. Volunteers' continuation in the position will be contingent on the results of the aforementioned clearances. If requested, WHYY will ask volunteers to complete the application forms for a CBC and CAC prior to their first day and cover the cost of each application form.
Note: A conviction record will not automatically result in your disqualification of volunteering; felony and misdemeanor convictions will be considered only to the extent they relate to the volunteer position for which you are being considered. However, failure to disclose a conviction and/or mischaracterization of a conviction will result in your ineligibility for volunteering and/or termination from volunteering (even if the conviction would not have barred your eligibility for volunteering had it been properly disclosed).
- Membership Campaigns
You or your company can be one of the friendly faces answering phones during WHYY-TV or WHYY-FM membership campaigns. Volunteers answer phones when supporters call to make contributions to WHYY and provide needed support to complete transactions. It's a great way to show support for WHYY and meet new people. It's also a fun activity for friends and community organizations.
WHYY holds many events each year for members and the general public at WHYY's Technology Center and in the community. Volunteers are needed to staff check-in and information tables.
- Office Support
There's much work to be done on a daily basis at a busy nonprofit organization such as WHYY. Your special skills could be a unique asset in a bustling environment.
