Why should YOU volunteer?

"Volunteering is my way of giving back and supporting a cause I believe in. I enjoy talking to the people who call in during the pledge drives and getting to know the other volunteers.  It’s great to be able to catch up with them at each pledge drive, like a little family reunion.  I think that others should volunteer because when you do, you get this feeling inside of having done something good."

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!
