Ongoing volunteer Opportunities

  • Fund Drives (twice a year in spring and fall)
  • Events
  • Outreach
  • Live Performances
  • Special Skills

Fund Drives

Volunteers answer phones, take pledges, help with data entry, and package thank-you gifts during and after the drive. Shifts are usually scheduled for 3-4 hours at a time.

Events

WDVX puts on and is a sponsor of many area festivals, concerts, and fundraising events. We also hold our own fundraisers, like the I Love WDVX Party in February and the Meadowlark Festival at Ijams Nature Center. Depending on the event, volunteers may be asked to set up, sell merchandise, help with a silent auction, staff ticket tables, take photographs, clean up and more. Many of these events happen on the weekend.

Outreach

Volunteers help tell the WDVX story at festivals, concerts, and other community events. They hand out WDVX literature, encourage people to sign up for the WDVX E-newsletter, and tell people about the radio station’s unique place in East Tennessee culture. We also need fleet-footed folks to post flyers about WDVX live performances and events at cooperating businesses throughout downtown, the University of Tennessee area and other venues.

Live Performance Volunteers

Live shows at WDVX are volunteer powered – everything from greeting guests to assisting the host to taking tickets is done by volunteers, WDVX’s best ambassadors.

  • The WDVX Blue Plate Special happens Monday through Saturday at noon.
  • Tennessee Shines is Mondays at 7 p.m.
  • First Friday Live is 7 p.m. every first Friday of the month
  • Kidstuff is the last Saturday of the month at 10 a.m.

Volunteers are needed at least an hour before each show.

Special Skills

If you have a special skill you’d like to offer – social media, IT, PR & Marketing, data entry, volunteer coordinating, we’d love to hear from you! Fill out the form above or email us at info@wdvx.com.
