WGVU Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways to contribute to WGVU, your local PBS and NPR station, and donating your time is one of the most valuable.

As we continue to expand our many community events throughout West Michigan, and as we strive to raise the necessary funds to pay for our programs and outreach, we welcome members from the community and avid WGVU listeners/viewers to become part of our  mission: to educate, inform and entertain.

Volunteering with WGVU is fun and offers you the chance to see how the radio and television stations operate from the inside. There are also plenty of  opportunities to meet new and diverse people, with a common interest - supporting quality programs and events at WGVU!
