Volunteer | WYPR


Thank you for your interest in volunteering for WYPR!   There is a form at the bottom of the page.  Once completed, please return to Heidi Sheppard.

We look for individuals who are motivated, excellent communicators, well-organized, and enthusiastic about the station.  By joining our volunteer community, you can meet people who share your interest in public radio, meet WYPR's on-air personalities, and participate in the life of the station.  You will also learn about upcoming events and other volunteer opportunities.  You will not only help the station, you'll have a great time.

Volunteers assist WYPR staff at our station's offices and at fairs, festivals, and events in the Baltimore area.  There is a variety of opportunities to accommodate your interests and schedule.  Volunteer opportunities are available both during the week and on weekends.

Volunteers' work helps keep the station running, and we greatly appreciate the generous contributions of time and effort to support our programming and outreach efforts!

Please note: Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age.

Types of Volunteer Activities:

  1. Fairs and Festivals: Interact with listeners and others at local/regional events, such as the Charles Village Festival, concerts at Patterson Park, etc.
  2. Outreach to new members: Call new members from the station following pledge drives, to thank them for their support.
  3. Special events: Assist station staff during local events, such as talks by on-air personalities. Activities include guest check-in, ushering, and assisting speakers during book signings.
