Volunteer – Get the Most Out of Your Houston Public Media Experience.

For Individuals

Houston Public Media seeks enthusiastic people to support the station. Not only will you help bring quality programming to the greater Houston area, you get to meet others that share in your cultural interests. There are many ways to become involved.

  • Membership drives: Volunteers staff the phone banks; serve as front desk greeters, meal assistants, and provide other administrative tasks. Phone volunteers must be computer savvy and have good hearing since we use headsets and laptops to enter this information. Check the calendar soon for scheduling information.
  • Community and Educational Outreach: Volunteers help out at events all around the city such as, Moth StorySlam, and others. For more information on how you can join our illustrious team of volunteers, email Gretchen Sammons at, or call 713.743.0178.

For Groups

Houston Public Media seeks groups to support the station. Volunteering not only provides service hours for employees and organization members, but also visibility about your organization’s dedication to community support.

  • Corporate and Organization Groups: Volunteers staff the phone banks during Houston Public Media’s membership drives. Each group receives on-air recognition. Meals and training are provided. For radio drives we require at least five members and for TV drives we require 12 – 15. Check the calendar soon for available nights.
