Volunteers support Network Knowledge by providing gifts of time and talent so that safe, entertaining, and educational programming can reach central and western Illinois. Viewer-supported programming relies on volunteers to provide many skills that are required to ensure continued programming.
One of our most important events are the telethons and we cannot do these without your help. During these telethons you will answer phones and take our viewers' pledges. A script will be available for those who have not worked a telethon before and a supervisor is always present for any questions that may arise.
As always we will have a meal available as a small "thank you" for your time. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our membership coordinator Kayla Graven at 217-483-7887 ext. 224.
