Volunteering your time and energy to Iowa Public Radio is every bit as valuable as donating your money. Spreading the mission of public radio through volunteering is a great way to see IPR behind-the-scenes, meet new people, and directly support the programming you love and rely on!

Volunteer opportunities will be based off your interests, location, availability and skill sets. Volunteer as little or as often as you would like – we appreciate any time you have to donate!

Membership Volunteers 
IPR Membership Volunteers will assist the membership team at our offices in Des Moines. Help us share our gratitude to our members by assisting with donor thank-you calls, data entry, and in-house mailings.

The ideal Membership Volunteer: friendly, a clear communicator, comfortable making phone calls to members and a proud IPR listener!

IPR Street Team
If you love being outside, live music, and engaging with new people – join IPR’s Street Team! Spread your love of Iowa Public Radio at music festivals, cultural events, concerts, lectures, and more statewide. You’ll get a free ticket to the event and an IPR member shirt.

The ideal IPR Street Team Volunteer: friendly, comfortable engaging with new people and sharing IPR’s mission, able to occasionally lift and carry heavy weights and a proud IPR listener!
