Volunteering is a great way to show your support for the station. Get to know other St. Louis Public Radio listeners by becoming a St. Louis Public Radio volunteer. We are looking for people to help around the office during the work day, spread the word about the station, and staff special events.

St. Louis Public Radio Community Ambassadors
Join our Community Ambassadors to spread the word about public radio at some of St. Louis’s most exciting events! Volunteers share information on the station’s programs and events with community members and other organizations.

Office & Membership Crew
Our Volunteers are critical to supporting our membership drives and everyday office operations. Join us to “stuff and send” important notifications, or help us to staff our reception areas during business hours.
