Twelve new radio stations across King County have received FCC approval to build low power FM radio stations to serve their communities. Through these new, nonprofit, commercial-free media outlets, anyone can become part of the voice of their surrounding area, whether that takes the form of starting conversations, sharing health and emergency response information or featuring local musicians, artists and other forms of local culture.

Volunteer committees are the building blocks of the community radio model, however, they do not currently have the internal resources necessary to fully involve volunteers in the support of their mission. Help foster the development and growth of these stations by creating a volunteer management toolkit that lays the ground work for their success.

A volunteer, volunteer manager is needed to help develop the infrastructure necessary for the stations to effectively recruit, engage and retain high-value volunteers. Contribute 150 hours over the course of 3 months and gain valuable experience in program development, volunteer management and community radio.

Work in the comfort of your own home to create a volunteer management toolkit, contents of which might include a volunteer:

  • handbook
  • position description template
  • application and matching process
  • orientation
  • recognition plan
  • and more.

Volunteers who have volunteer management and/or human resources knowledge, project management experience and/or who have significant experience as a community volunteer will do particularly well in this critical role.

Training, volunteer management resources, support and a $400 service award are available!
