Why do YOU volunteer?

"I volunteer because I am a people person. And I like to talk.  I was raised from a family history of giving since I was a small child. My parents utilized their skill set to volunteer. My parents were charter members of many entities; church, the historical society, scout leaders, etc. I volunteer because I know what it’s like to need, and it feels so good to give. It is the right thing to do, for me, and for DPTV."


Harriett Biayl, 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!
