Event outreach: As often as possible, we try to get on the ground at Mendocino County events and festivals so we can meet with the community that we are trying to serve. It is one of the best ways to let people know about the value of KZYX&Z. We always have fun (like building “radio towers” with tinker-toys) and are received well. The ideal person to volunteer in outreach is an outgoing personality that is comfortable talking about why they think our station is worth listening to and supporting. We like to do things in teams for outreach, so if you come to “person” a booth at a festival or expo we will pair you up with someone and help you represent the station in the best way possible.
Hosting outreach: When we throw a party, put on a concert, or host an event we need volunteers to help make everything go smoothly. Sometimes we need people to pick up supplies, greet people at the door, or just make sure that everyone is having fun. This is a great volunteer opportunity for the person who likes having fun, and wants to share their enthusiasm for whatever we are putting together.
