Become a Volunteer
As a nonprofit organization, the Nine Network of Public Media would not be able to achieve its goals without our valuable volunteers. Whatever your interests might be, we are sure to have something rewarding for you to do. Individuals and groups are welcome to volunteer regularly or on an “as-needed” basis helping with administrative work, special projects, and special events.
Benefits of Volunteering
Contribute to activities and projects that showcase your interests, talents and skills! As a volunteer you will be supporting public television while meeting new people, developing new skills, and taking on significant roles. The Nine Network has a variety of opportunities for students, seniors and professionals from all walks of life.
