We’ll teach character performers and their handlers how to make their costumed character come to life as a lovable, entertaining and memorable ambassador of Detroit Public Television.

This is a perfect opportunity for high school and college theater students to get involved. If you have any questions or would like to register for the class, please contact Anna Moga at amoga@dptv.org or 248.305.3705.

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?

"Volunteering is a great way to meet people and see PBS behind the scenes. You instantly know that your help is welcome now and in the future. There are so many seasoned DPTV volunteers who welcome new volunteers and willingly share an abundance of institutional knowledge about the programming and station."
