Volunteer with CKUW

CKUW is always looking for volunteers from the campus and community. If you have a passion for radio, music and ideas or just want to help out behind the scenes let us know!

Volunteers must complete a series of training workshops before joining the Radio Society. Over the course of three short workshops you will learn about:

  • CKUWs organization
  • Canadian broadcasting rules & regulations
  • How to operate our on-air studio

The workshops are free of charge and are scheduled at flexible times every month. Annual membership is only $10 for U of W students and $20 for everyone else.

After completing the training, volunteers are eligible for any of the great opportunities at CKUW.

  • Create your own radio show
  • Join our news team
  • Help organize and catalogue new music
  • Learn how to edit sound on our computers

To find out more about training or how you can help create ‘listener driven radio’ contact our Volunteer Coordinator: [email protected]
