CEMA uses volunteers for a wide variety of clerical activities, including: sending out thank you gifts, compiling membership mailings, addressing envelopes, and calling station members. Shifts are available only during the work week.
Help get the word out about CEMA Network! Ambassadors spread news about CEMA Studios at CEMA sponsored community events throughout the Mid Atlantic Region and beyond. This is a great opportunity for those of our listeners who would like to volunteer, but do not live near the station, or are only free on evenings and weekends.
There are occasional openings for volunteers to assist our on-air hosts with their programs. The responsibilities of these volunteers vary depending on the program host, but might include: answering phones, conducting research, and social media.
More than 70% of CEMA's Radio/TV funds comes from listeners during our radiothons, membership drives, and community event promotional drives. They are intrinsic to the success of the station. Volunteers answer phones and record incoming donations. Shifts are generally four hours and are available weekdays and weekends, 6am-10pm. Groups are also welcome, and groups of 4 or more will be recognized on the air while they are here!
Among the purposes of CEMA Radio is to provide an outlet for the creative skills and energies of the community. To this end, we encourage members of the community to submit programming proposals to CEMA Radio. Proposals should be no more than a page long and should include information about the prospective on-air host, including any relevant on-air experience, as well as information about the prospective show. Successful proposals will be detailed, to the point and will keep CEMA's
mission statement in mind. Powerpoint presentations can also be submitted
to our office.
The primary responsibility of a CEMA Foundation Volunteer for the first six months of the program is to serve as a brand ambassador and provide professional services to paying guests and clients for all CEMA events, as well as studio executives. During this period, Volunteers assist with all aspects of the CEMA programs, projects, events, and subsidiaries. After six months, Volunteers become eligible to work utility positions around the studio, assist with managing audiences for television shows, and potentially deliver more in-depth event projects. These more diverse positions provide a way for Volunteers to hone their skill sets and explore their strengths.
This is an opportunity to enter the real world of entertainment, learn it from the inside-out, and network with a wide variety of contributors on all levels. The Volunteer Program focuses on the business end of the Studio and frequently places talented Volunteers in entry-level administrative positions in the radio and tv studio. The program lasts between 8 and 12 months. Although the position is part-time, hours approach full time during peak seasons.
The CEMA Foundation Volunteer Program aims to provide talented individuals with the hands-on experience they need to be successful in the multi-cultural entertainment, music and arts business. It is a stepping stone into a multitude of careers on the business end of the entertainment industry.
