Volunteer opportunities at KECT include crewing on a
staff production, helping with office work, and crewing for
an access show. All Volunteer opportunities are negotiated
on a case by case basis. You may qualify for credit to help
offset your cost of producing or renting equipment.
How to Get Involved
Production volunteers on
staff and access shows need to complete the
studio production workshop.
For volunteers with prior television production experience,
we offer reorientations in which the Training Coordinator
explains and demonstrates KECT's equipment and procedures.
The cost of the re-orientation is $30 per hour, and it
usually takes about 1-2 hours. At the discretion of the
Training Coordinator, completion of the reorientation is
equal to that of the 5-week studio production course.
KECT welcomes interns.
