Our first group of volunteers summoned up the resources, support and community interest to create the station in 1983.
Today, our volunteers continue to make a valuable contribution to the station. Volunteers assist our staff in the WQPT PBS offices, helping out at events, community outreach activities, and help with membership campaigns. We simply could not provide you the outstanding programming and services we do without the dedication and support from our volunteers.
Like our founding group of volunteers, WQPT PBS volunteers share a common commitment to the station. They play a critical role that helps bring public television and our Educational Outreach initiatives to the region we serve. They also share a belief that the station plays an essential role in the educational and cultural life in our communities. Each and every volunteer brings a unique contribution to WQPT PBS.
A few hours of your time is a fun and valuable way to get involved; and equally important is the outstanding impact your time will have for the station. Volunteers help the station keep operational costs low, while enhancing our outreach services and more.
