Volunteer

Friends of Louisiana Public Broadcasting is organized to further the educational and cultural enrichment of all citizens and to assist in making the benefits of educational and public television programming available to all the people of Louisiana.

Volunteering at LPB is a great way to show your support for public television, meet new people, have fun, and allow LPB to continue delivering quality programming, educational outreach services and more to the local community. LPB counts on loyal volunteers to help us answer phones during membership drives, greet guests during special events and assist with other station activities.

LPB understands that your time is valuable, but help from volunteers like you is invaluable to the station. Whether you have just a few hours, or a few days each week, you’ll find your time spent at the station rewarding.
