Show your love for Austin music and support KUTX at the same time. Join the KUTX volunteer crew!
We’re looking for KUTX super fans to represent us around town and help out in our offices. KUTX volunteers are a community of like-minded music lovers who value Austin’s music scene and want to help keep it thriving. While KUTX is licensed by the University of Texas, we’re a community-supported, grassroots station with a small staff, so we rely on our volunteers to fulfill our mission to promote Austin music.
Volunteering with KUTX is a great way to get a behind-the-scenes look at the station, meet new people and support the Austin music scene. Whether you’re a native Austinite or new to town, volunteering for KUTX is a great way to get out and experience your city. Plus, it’s fun! From time to time, volunteers are recognized with KUTX goodies, special contest opportunities and an annual party.
What Do Volunteers Do
KUTX Volunteers do a lot – and look good doing it! (We’ll make sure you have a KUTX T-shirt to wear.) From putting up banners at concerts, to handing out KUTX bumper stickers at local events, to making thank-you calls during Membership Drives, KUTX volunteers are at the heart of our work to reflect and support the Austin music experience.
Currently, we have openings for volunteers to conduct tours of the station, assist with the KUTX Concert Club in Studio 1A, and represent KUTX at concerts, festivals, and other cultural events.
How It Works
KUTX uses Shiftboard for scheduling volunteers. With Shiftboard, you can see a calendar of upcoming opportunities and choose the ones that interest you. (If something changes, you can even use Shiftboard to swap shifts with other volunteers.)
If you’re interested in volunteering, you’ll first have to complete a brief orientation. No need to come in – the KUTX Volunteer Orientation takes about 20 minutes to complete, can be done entirely online, and can be completed in parts. Once you’ve completed it, you’ll be ready to start picking up volunteer shifts.
In the course of this orientation, you’ll open a few different tabs and will need to be able to switch back and forth between them easily. Because of this, you’ll want to view the orientation on a desktop, laptop, or tablet, as opposed to your smartphone.
