Volunteer With KSPS PBS

What is up for volunteering in 2024?

Our Education Department is working on incredible educational opportunities in elementary schools. They have developed curriculum and workshops to benefit children and families in need of additional support through STEAM activities and PBS KIDs resources. There are volunteer opportunities to provide them with assistance and have influence in kids’ lives.

The Development Department has number of tasks and projects that help us maintain our membership including, office work, filing, organizing, and data entry. Along with events and outreach activities, which are being scheduled, that help us promote our programming and fulfill our mission to build stronger communities.

We are working to develop our Career Explore NW visibility to reach out to those exploring career opportunities and connecting them with employers who are seeking talented workers.

There are new ways to volunteer popping up all the time and we would love to have you join us.

KSPS PBS Volunteer of the Year

Jan Graham

Jan started volunteering in 2016. She has answered many last-minute emails and texts requesting her help, often saying, “I will be there in 15 minutes.” She has been a Friend of KSPS member since before 1981.

Here is snapshot of what she has been doing this past year:

Building Aquifer cups kits
Assisting with Education programs in schools
Calling members regarding declined charge cards
Stuffing mail
Entering member surveys data
Working the front desk during Civics Bowl
Helping with thank you’ s mailing.
Representing KSPS at event tables
Scanning Sustainer information
Organizing FitKid’s items after the event
And anything extra we just asked her to do while she was already here.

All this and she still finds time to travels the world.

Congratulations to our 2024 Volunteer of the Year, Jan Graham!
