Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities

Throughout New Orleans Public Radio’s history, the station and volunteers have enjoyed a rewarding partnership. Volunteers assist WWNO’s staff at the station’s offices and participate in the station’s community events in the Greater New Orleans area. The service WWNO volunteers provide helps keep the station running — and the station greatly appreciates volunteers' generosity and enthusiasm.

Year-round opportunities available in various departments include filing, answering phones, word processing, mailings and special projects.

Member Communications
Updating members’ addresses, compiling member information, and reaching out by phone are some of the ways that volunteers help us stay in touch with 5,000 listeners who support the station financially. We provide the training, you provide the talent and generosity. Writing, research and graphics talent are welcome too.

Membership Drives
During New Orleans Public Radio’s membership drives, volunteers are needed to answer phones and take pledges. Assistance is also needed with pre- and post-drive mailings. There are spring, fall and year-end drives each year.

Community Events
Volunteers help to staff tables at special events and act as ambassadors for New Orleans Public Radio, distributing literature and answering questions. Special events volunteers should have a friendly manner and enjoy talking to people about public radio.
