About

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 approximately 100 hours over the course of 3 months and gain valuable experience in program development, volunteer management and community radio.

The volunteer, volunteer manager will work behind the scenes with 7 stations to create a volunteer management toolkit including:

  • Position descriptions for essential volunteer roles
  • An outline of a volunteer orientation
  • Volunteer handbook
  • Volunteer screening process
  • Feedback survey

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.

Work in the comfort of your own home to build your resume, gain access to volunteer management resources, and earn a $400 service award!
