Volunteer at CRIS
There are many ways volunteers can help CRIS fulfill its mission. CRIS provides programming 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so there may be volunteer reader opportunities available, either at our broadcast center in Windsor, or at one of our regional satellite studios (Danbury, Norwich, Trumbull, and West Haven). Volunteers may also read from home for our TeleReader service (telephone landline needed). We also record a variety of educational materials including children’s magazines and books, as well as Spanish-language publications.
Readers generally volunteer one day a week for 60 minutes. Programs at CRIS regional satellite studios are read live, either in the morning beginning at 8 a.m., or in the evening beginning at 6 p.m. In Windsor, we produce both live and recorded programs.
In addition to volunteers providing their voice talent, we have varying needs at our broadcast center in Windsor. Those needs include: editing audio files; producing the live news programs; updating databases; general office duties; serving on our Board of Directors; providing outreach by serving on the CRIS Speakers Bureau; and serving on a fundraising committee.
Please be aware that because of the number of volunteer applications we receive, particularly for readers, you may not receive a response from us right away. We keep all applications on file and will contact you as the volunteer opportunity you selected on the application becomes available.
