Volunteers are staff, donating their time and skills for free. But as volunteer staff, they need to be oriented to the workplace like any other worker, informed of their rights and responsibilities, and expectations, and in return, made to feel welcome and appreciated.
In this recent webinar, speakers looked at practical steps and tools to help you build your volunteer program at your media organization. The presenters are Jennifer Kiser, assistant director of independent media at the University of California Santa Barbara/KCSB, and Jessica Evett, general manager at Radio Boise.
Most community media organizations need and encourage the participation of volunteer labor. But how does a station determine what they need, and where to look for help? Log in to NFCB’s Solution Center to access this webinar. Join NFCB if your station is not a member.
