Volunteer FAQ

Do you have to be a student at the University of Manitoba to volunteer at CJUM?

As we are a cam­pus & com­mu­ni­ty radio sta­tion, any­one on the cam­pus or in the com­mu­ni­ty can become a vol­un­teer at CJUM.

Okay, so I want to become a volunteer at CJUM - what's next?

We love new vol­un­teers at CJUM! Your jour­ney starts by fill­ing out our vol­un­teer appli­ca­tion form, drop­ping it off at the sta­tion or email­ing it to our vol­un­teer coor­di­na­tor! From there, you’ll set up a time to come in to attend a basic ori­en­ta­tion ses­sion and will then sched­ule your first train­ing ses­sion. All new vol­un­teers must com­plete our train­ing pro­gram in order to apply for a show, sign out cds or record­ing equip­ment and to rep­re­sent the sta­tion at shows or com­mu­ni­ty events.

Since you mentioned applying for a show, I have a great idea! How do I get my show onto the air at CJUM?

Once you’ve com­plet­ed your train­ing, we encour­age you to pro­vide us with your pitch. Our pro­gram direc­tor can get you a show pro­pos­al form and walk you through what’s required to make it offi­cial. The pro­pos­al then goes to our pro­gram­ming com­mit­tee, made up of sea­soned CJUM hosts, who will take a look at it to deter­mine how it might fit with­in our exist­ing sched­ule. Though all pro­pos­als are con­sid­ered, pref­er­ence will always be giv­en to those that are unique and bring some­thing new to the cur­rent line-up. The sta­tion’s man­date to pro­vide oppor­tu­ni­ties for as many dif­fer­ent voic­es and com­mu­ni­ties as pos­si­ble, so we try to avoid dupli­ca­tion where pos­si­ble. You should also be aware that we do our best to reserve day­time time slots occur­ring between 10AM and 4PM Mon­day through Thurs­day for cur­rent Uni­ver­si­ty of Man­i­to­ba stu­dents, fac­ul­ties and stu­dent groups.
