PBS Kids Viewer Support

A new 24/7 kids channel is coming to OPB, and we're anticipating an increase in questions regarding the change. So, we'd like to have a team of volunteers available to answer questions when the Member Center is closed.

Dates:
Monday, January 23
Tuesday, January 24

Shift times:
6:30 - 9:30 AM
5:30 - 8:30 PM


Volunteers should have strong customer service skills and enjoy talking to people on the phone. We'll provide all of the information you'll need to answer questions, so a high level of technical knowledge or aptitude is not required. Volunteers will be entering information into a Google form, and will use a paper manual to assist callers with troubleshooting reception problems. The manuals will be provided to volunteers in advance of their shifts, and volunteers will receive training at the beginning of their shifts.
