We are seeking two types of volunteers at this time.
1. Are you a professional radio producer or journalist? We could use your help! We are always looking for people like you to come work with our students. Through an intensively collaborative process between experts and young people, we are able to produce broadcast quality work. If you are interested in working with us in this capacity, please send us an email at Phillyouthradio@gmail.com, with the subject line “Expert Volunteer” with a brief description of what you do and why you are interested in volunteering with us. Thank you!
2. Do you enjoy working with and around young people? Do you like our work and want to support it? If so, we have a lot of room for general volunteers. If you have time or skills to contribute, we can work together to make use of them! If you have experience in media-making (photography, blogging, web/graphic design, etc.) that’s a plus! If you are interested in working with us in this capacity, please send us an email at Phillyouthradio@gmail.com, with the subject line “General Volunteer” and a brief description of what you have to offer. Thank you!
We are also seeking donations of all types. Generally we are looking for the following:
- Any unwanted, gently used audio equipment, including: audio editing software, digital recorders, headphones, cables, SD cards, microphones, etc.
- Digital cameras to document our process
- Video recording equipment
- Food to feed our hungry teens after school
- Any monetary donations that you can offer – we will soon have a donation button on this website
- Space to hold workshops
- Office supplies, such as poster paper and markers, to facilitate our lessons
If you would like to donate something, please email us at Phillyouthradio@gmail.com with the subject line “Donation.”
