Volunteering at GPB
Georgia Public Broadcasting enlists the assistance of volunteers throughout the year for on-air fundraising campaigns, administrative assistance, special projects and events. Each volunteer brings a unique contribution to the GPB family and plays an essential role in the educational and cultural life the communities we serve.
Volunteer opportunities and shift schedules are usually communicated by e-mail. Please submit a completed Volunteer Form along with your contact information and we will add you to our Friends of GPB volunteer list.
GPB’s Television Campaigns
As a volunteer during a GPB Television Campaign, you would help answer the phones and record donor information. In some cases, you may even appear on television! Our Campaigns take place in March, June, August and December. You must be at least 16 years of age.
Community and Business Groups
Volunteer groups provide an efficient, cost-effective way to help GPB fundraise during our On-Air Television Fund Drives. This opportunity also offers great exposure for your organization. Meals and raffle prizes are included during each shift. Volunteer groups are encouraged to wear matching organization shirts.
GPB’s Prime Time Partner program combines volunteer engagement with campaign sponsorship. Sponsorship level benefits include:
- On-air recognition.
- On-air interview.
- TV spot production with scheduled on-air campaign inclusion potentially reaching over 2 million viewers across the state of Georgia.
- GPB Prime Time Partner T-Shirts for all participating volunteers

Administrative and Production Assistance
Volunteers are needed to help at the GPB office in various departments. Work assignments and time commitments depend upon the need of the department, but usually take place Monday through Friday between 9 am and 5 pm. Assignments may include helping with mailings, data entry, filing, answering phone calls, and other important day-to-day office functions. Additionally, volunteers may help in our TV studios serving as production assistants and in other capacities.
To be considered as an Administrative or Production assistant please contact Lisa Morris at LMorris@gpb.org.
GPB calls on volunteers to assist with special events throughout the year. Event volunteers assist with set-up, decorations, greeting people, making follow-up phone calls, serving as tour guides and much, much more!
