Join the KBOO Volunteer Community in 2013


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

Connect with creative people, learn new skills and helping KBOO make fabulous community radio!

Do you want to get to know some wonderfully creative and committed people?  Do you want to learn new skills? Looking for a way to give back to your community?  Volunteer at KBOO!

Did you know that there are about 500 volunteers who participate in KBOO, on and off of the air, to make us the best dang station around? KBOO volunteers make up a very diverse, dynamic, and engaged community. They are the people you hear on the air, and the people who make things work behind the scenes. Volunteers staff outreach tables, write news stories, host on-air programs, fix headphones, set up live music, download and upload programs from and to the internet, and so much more.

Every month we welcome new volunteers to KBOO through our volunteer orientation.  Their reasons for getting involved are varied: some want to get more involved in their community; they are new in town and want to meet people who share interests; they love radio and want to see what goes on "behind the scenes"; they want to learn new skills and are interested in audio production, they were involved in community or college radio in the past, and miss it-- and many other reasons. 

What ever your reason might be, you are welcome to check out our next volunteer orientation.  It will be held Tuesday, January 8th, 6 – 8 pm, or contact me for further assistance.
