Volunteering at KLRU is a great way to make connections in your community, have fun and show your support for public television! KLRU counts on loyal volunteers to help us greet guests during special events, answer phones during fundraising drives and assist with other station activities.

KLRU Special Events

Throughout the year, KLRU produces a number of community and member events in the realms of public issues, the arts and education. From exclusive screenings and panel discussions to member-centric events and Austin City Limits tapings, KLRU depends on volunteers at these events that entertain, inspire and cover important issues in our community and beyond.

KLRU Fundraising Drives

Answering phones during fundraising drives is essential to the future of KLRU. It’s through these drives that we can continue to make a difference in the homes, classrooms and communities of Central Texas. Each night we are live from the studio we need assistance from 10-15 volunteers. Not only do volunteers enjoy meeting KLRU staff, but they also get an inside peek at historic Studio 6A and a taste of what it’s like to be on camera! Individuals and corporate groups are welcome. Food is provided.
