Volunteer Opportunities in Charlottesville

volunteerEvent Support

Engage with attendees at various VPM and partner events in the community focused on art/culture, science, education, and news/history. This could include interacting with guests, educational children’s activities, or event set-up/ flow. Duties vary with each event. Opportunities exist for both weeknights and weekends.

Events are a great way to introduce the many programs and resources VPM offers. By interacting with guests and sharing information, you help connect us with new and current audiences.

Some of our many other events throughout the year include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Virginia Festival of the Book Event
  • Tom Tom Founders Festival – April
  • Charlottesville City Market - Summer
  • Virginia Film Festival - Fall
  • Charlottesville Grand Illumination - December

Make a difference in the life of a child by being a guest reader. VPM PBS hosts 'Reading in the Classroom," a VPM Early Childhood Education initiative, at preschool programs in Charlottesville City Schools. Reading sessions occur four times (November, December, February, March) while school is in session. After the session, children will get to take home a free copy of the book.
