WTTW is committed to producing and presenting trusted, best-in-class content fueled by a distinctly Chicago sensibility. We engage our audiences by entertaining, inspiring, educating, and reflecting a diversity of perspectives.
All participants must be at least 16 years of age. Organizations that have youth members must supply one chaperone for every ten teenagers. Young individuals may volunteer, but should be accompanied by a parent or guardian, especially for evening shifts, per local curfew laws.
The majority of a pledge volunteer’s time is spent answering telephone calls from viewers and prospective donors. While taking these calls, volunteers enter callers’ information (name, address, phone number, thank-you gift items, method of payment, etc.) via laptop computer. Basic typing skills and a comfort and familiarity with computers are required of all volunteers. Thorough training is provided so all volunteers are comfortable and confident using our software, laptops, phones, and headsets.
