Why do YOU volunteer?

"I needed to stay active in retirement and wanted to give back to the community. I often watch the PBS pledge drives and thought it would be a good match for me. Turns out, I was right!  Anyone who watches public television understands the quality programing they provide and the need for support from viewers. I have met so many nice people in such a short time and had a great time doing it!"


Peggy VanSickle, Detroit Public TV Volunteer


Be a part of it

When we think of volunteers, we think of time. In our lives, one thing we cannot create, accumulate, acquire, buy or even borrow is time.  Therefore, an individual’s time is a very precious commodity. This makes your time, commitment and support to Detroit Public Television extra special and greatly appreciated.  

Thank you!
