CEMAC VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

 

This prestigious program serves as an ongoing talent pipeline for CEMAC, and while it is not a guarantee, more than 60% of graduates have moved into full-time positions within the CEMAC family.

The primary responsibility of a CEMAC 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 CEMAC events,  as well as CEMAC staff. During this period, Volunteers assist with all aspects of the CEMAC 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.

These more diverse positions provide a way for Volunteers to hone their skill sets and explore their strengths. Candidates are required to make their position as a CEMAC Volunteer their top scheduling priority.

This is an opportunity to enter the real world of entertainment, learn it from the inside-out, and network with a wide variety of contributors on all levels. The Volunteer Program focuses on the business end of the company and frequently places talented Volunteers in entry-level administrative positions in the office. The program lasts between 8 and 12 months. Although the position is part-time, hours approach full time during peak seasons. 

  

The CEMAC 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.

BRAND AMBASSADORS

Help get the word out about CEMAC! Ambassadors spread news about CEMAC at CEMAC sponsored community events throughout the Mid Atlantic Region and beyond. This is a great opportunity for those of our listeners and supporters who would like to volunteer, but do not live near the station, or are only free on evenings and weekends.  

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. 

CLERICAL ASSISTANTS

CEMAC 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. 

RADIO PROGRAMMERS

Among the purposes of  CEMAC 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 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 CEMAC's mission statement in mind. 

FUNDRAISERS

More than 70% of CEMAC'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 here!
