Volunteer to help make our membership drive successful!


KBOO is open to the public! To visit the station, contact your staff person or call 503-231-8032.

Answering phones during our Fall drive is a great way to check out volunteering and support KBOO!

Have you wondered what volunteering at KBOO is like?  Do you want to get more involved with your community radio station?  This is your time! KBOO’s Fall Membership Drive begins Thursday, October 6th, and runs through Saturday, October 22nd.

KBOO’s existence depends on membership drives as more than 80% of our funding comes from our listeners—this is, in part, what allows KBOO to be so independent and unique. We ask that all current volunteers at KBOO help with the drive, as we have more than 600 shifts to fill! With shifts available seven days a week, generally spanning the hours of 6 AM to 11 PM, there are shifts to fit anyone’s schedule.

The drive is very high energy, and volunteers work very closely together in teams to raise support for the station. It can be really fun to schedule a shift during a time that you listen; you can meet the volunteers that you hear on the radio and talk with others that share your interests. If you haven’t volunteered before, try answering phones & assisting our listeners to become members—it’s a great way to jump on in. There are other opportunities related to the drive, so contact me for more information. No experience required.

My email address is volunteer@kboo.org or you can phone me at 503-231-8032 ext. 213. I’ll be happy to hear from you.
