Volunteers are the engine behind our station’s wide range of projects. Most importantly, our network of dedicated volunteers helps us keep the public in public media. 

Opportunities to serve include administrative help, educational program guides and KCPBS Ambassadors. As a community-chartered station, all local support is critical to our work. Donating your time allows KCPBS to produce local journalism, quality educational programming, free events and enables us to serve more of the Kansas City metro. Please consider volunteering for KCPBS today. 

Volunteer Opportunities at Kansas City PBS

Administrative Volunteers

Administrative Volunteers will assist staff with various projects at the station during business hours. Donor gift mailings, data entry and packing materials for events or off-site projects are examples of additional station needs that utilize administrative volunteers. Volunteers may be asked to train as the front desk receptionist. Opportunities exist year-round, with different needs in December and January assisting the membership department with end-of-year giving initiatives.

Possibilities could include assisting with administrative tasks, working with children and parents at workshops and facilitating activity stations at children’s events.
