Become a Volunteer at CJNU

Most of the ‘work’ that keeps CJNU on the air is done by volunteers. Volunteers are needed to perform a wide range of tasks including, but not limited to:

  • On air announcing
  • Producing programmes
  • Operating studio equipment
  • Audio editing
  • Technical support
  • Handling phone calls
  • Data entry
  • Addressing and stuffing envelopes
  • Staffing display tables at a mall or other community event
  • Distributing posters in the community
  • Attending community events to take photographs
  • Conducting interviews in the community
  • Working on the monthly ‘Nostalgia Notes’ newsletter
  • Assisting with marketing and promotions
  • Helping find new sponsors and advertisers
  • Providing general administrative support
  • Sitting on committees

…and much more! Relevant experience in any of these areas is always helpful, but is not necessarily required for any of these jobs – just a willingness to learn. Most of our volunteers work one shift per week, for around three or four hours – but when and how often you work is potentially flexible. Some tasks can even be completed from home!
