Did you know that Rogers TV has about 2,000 volunteers that help produce thousands of hours of high-quality local access programming?
Since the 68th annual National Volunteer Week begins on April 10, we’d like to thank all those talented and dedicated volunteers who help power our 34 community TV channels throughout Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.
Besides having fun and expressing themselves, these volunteers also gain production and presentation skills that can lead to a career in broadcasting or provide valuable experience for other jobs thanks to the extensive training programs offered at Rogers TV.
The Rogers TV volunteers are just some of the more than 12.5 million volunteers across Canada dedicating more than two billion hours to the front lines of community services including healthcare, sports, environmental protection and disaster relief – to name a few.
Here’s how to get involved
If you or someone you know would like to volunteer at Rogers TV, visit the Volunteer section of http://www.rogerstv.com, drop by our studios or call our Volunteer Hotline at 1-877-LOCAL TV. You can also follow Volunteer Canada on Twitter for up-to-date information on volunteering in Canada.
