Become a Volunteer
Volunteering with KERA is a great way to show your support for the programming and services we offer North Texans just like you. Here are just a few of the vital services volunteers provide that help KERA achieve our mission.
• On-Air Membership Campaigns — Help grow the community of members who support KERA’s quality programming by volunteering during a TV or radio membership campaign. Volunteers answer phones and take donations.
• Member Thank-You Calls — Help us thank the members whose support makes KERA’s programs and services possible. Volunteers call members who have recently contributed to KERA TV or radio just to say thank you.
• Membership Services — Help steward the members who support KERA and KXT by volunteering in our Membership Services office. Volunteers fold letters, stuff envelopes, pack thank-you gifts and more.
• Special Events — Help us put our best foot forward by representing KERA and KXT at community events across North Texas. Volunteers assist with event setup and tear-down and engage with the public.
