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!

Why should YOU volunteer?

"It is important to me to support Public Television and all that they offer their local communities. There is a nice group of folks who volunteer at DPTV and the shifts are only 5-6 hours, the work is not physically taxing and the computer work is pretty easy to learn. It is a volunteer match made in heaven - maybe for you, too."
