Volunteer at KSJC

KSJC is sustained and enriched by our volunteers. Volunteers are what make us unique, diverse and an invaluable resource to the community. We understand that everyone has something special to contribute, and we offer a variety of ways you can assist. Experience is not necessary to volunteer, just enthusiasm and commitment. We will provide training in exchange for your time and commitment. Volunteering your time is a great way to meet new people while learning new skills, contributing to locally produced programming, supporting day-to-day operations of the station, assisting with fundraising and outreach events, and have some fun! 

As a community-supported, independent radio station, KSJC could not exist without the wonderful volunteers that help make our station run so smoothly. Volunteer responsibilities include (but are not limited to): answering emails, preparing letters and packages for outgoing mail, managing outside broadcasting, sorting and archiving media library, coordinating community calendar enteries, fundraising, pledge drive support, event outreach and writing for the web and social media platforms.

Donating your time and talents is a great way to support KSJC and the community. We are always looking for volunteers who are reliable and dependable; able to function well with minimal supervision; communicate well; appreciate diversity; and plays well with others.  

If you, or anyone you know, would like to help us out down at the station, please don’t hesitate to email us at: ksjc92.5@gmail.com or use the volunteer application form below.
