As a member of the Volunteer Friends of Eight, we rely on your dependability and flexibility to participate in a variety of activities. Once you register as a Volunteer Friend, you will receive email notifications when volunteer opportunities are available. The minimum age requirement is 16 years. Civic, social, and high school groups are welcome to participate in membership drives.
Participating in Eight's most important fundraising activity is enjoyable and easy. Membership drives are held approximately 5 times (March, June, August, October, and December) throughout the year.
Volunteers assist staff and act as greeters and hosts to represent Eight at social, fundraising and educational events held throughout the year. Eight's events include: ASU Homecoming; Annual Beer Tasting; Be More Awards; Educational events conducted by ASSET; Concerts and Workshops.
Groups of all ages and interests contact Eight to arrange tours of the station. Volunteers receive training about Eight's history and the latest technology currently in use. A tour takes about an hour and provides a look at the control room and studios. Tours are conducted during business hours.
Volunteers assist with stuffing and mailing letters, data entry, answering phones and various office work requested by Eight staff.
We welcome groups to join us during our membership drives. Usually, we ask a group to provide 10-15 volunteers phone operators for a shift. It is a great team building experience and an excellent way to support your community.
