The primary responsibility of a CEMA Volunteer for the first six months of the program is to serve as a brand ambassador and provide professional services to paying guests and clients for all CEMA events, as well as CEMA staff. During this period, Volunteers assist with all aspects of the CEMA programs, projects, events, and subsidiaries. After six months, Volunteers become eligible to work utility positions around the office and in the studios, assist with managing audiences for radio and television
shows, and potentially deliver more in-depth event projects.
Help get the word out about CEMA! Ambassadors spread news about CEMA at CEMA sponsored community events throughout the country. This is a great opportunity for those of our supporters who would like to volunteer, but do not live near the CEMA Center, or are only free on evenings and weekends.
The CEMA Volunteer Program aims to provide talented individuals with the hands-on experience they need to be successful in the community service business. It is a stepping stone into a multitude of careers on the business end of the non profit sector as well as the entertainment industry.
CEMA uses volunteers for a wide variety of clerical activities, including: sending out thank you gifts, compiling membership mailings, addressing envelopes, and calling station members. Shifts are available only
during the work week.
Among the purposes of CEMA is to provide an outlet for the creative skills and energies of the community. To this end, we encourage members of the community to submit programming proposals to CEMA TV and CEMA Radio. Proposals should be no more than a page long and should include information about the prospective on-air host, including any relevant on-air experience, as well as information about the prospective show. Successful proposals will be detailed, to the point and will keep CEMA's mission statement in mind.
PROGRAM HOST ASSISTANTS
There are occasional openings for volunteers to assist our on-air hosts with their programs. The responsibilities of these volunteers vary depending on the program host, but might include: answering phones, conducting research, and social media.
More than 70% of CEMA's funds comes from listeners during our radiothons, membership drives, and community event promotional drives. They are intrinsic to the success of the organization. Volunteers answer phones and record incoming donations. Shifts are generally four hours and are available weekdays and weekends, 6am-10pm. Groups are also welcome, and groups of 4 or more
will be recognized on the air while they
are in our studio!
