Internships & Volunteer Opportunities

Are you looking for an exciting internship opportunity to learn about broadcast journalism and/or television production? Consider applying for a spring, summer or fall internship with PBS Charlotte! Applicants must be currently enrolled in a community college or university program and earning credit toward a degree. We also welcome community volunteers who would like to assist with a variety of projects throughout the year.

Internships

Any student seeking college credit toward a degree may apply for one of our unpaid internships. Interns will have the opportunity to go out in the field to assist our production crews, operate studio equipment and work with our reporters producing content for local programs, special projects and documentaries. Occasionally, we may have you assist our Education & Outreach or Membership Departments to expose you to a wider range of experiences during your internship.

Volunteer Opportunities

Throughout the year, there are a number of projects and events in which we rely heavily on volunteers. This could include a sneak preview screening of a PBS program, a literacy outreach initiative or a live membership drive. If you or your group would like to serve as a volunteer, email Jeffrey Rivenbark.

Our interns and volunteers add tremendous value to what we do each day at PBS Charlotte and we appreciate your interest.
