Why should YOU volunteer?

"I believe others should volunteer because, first of all, it’s fun.  Second of all, for young people, it is a good way to learn new things and prepare for careers and enjoy more fully whatever position they take in the workforce.  For Seniors I would recommend volunteering because their experience and sociability is very important to others that they interact with. I also believe others should volunteer because it will provide them with not only a sense of but participation in the American Experience.

Volunteering is part and parcel of the American Scene and allows to get to know others and understand them by working with them.  There is nothing like sharing a new experience with someone to get to know someone. They should also volunteer because they are likely to have access to more donuts in their life than if they did not."

Alfred Brock, 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!
