Please take your time completing the application; the Operations Director will review them all and accept volunteers on a priority basis, based on responses.

After you complete a volunteer application, you’ll then have a volunteer profile that you can access to alter your application responses, and sign up for a CFUV Info Session.

The Info Session provides the opportunity to learn more about CFUV, ask questions, and get an update on our available volunteer opportunities and training.


Frequently Asked Questions about volunteering:

Q: Do you have to be a UVic student to volunteer?
A: Nope! CFUV is open to all applicants. However, there are a few times in the year when we prioritize UVic students. Contact the Operations Director for more info.

Q: I have no experience with sound or broadcasting. Is that an issue?
A: Definitely not. CFUV staff will provide all of the necessary training and no previous experience is required.

Q: I want to get involved, but I work during the weekdays. Are there still opportunities for me?
A: Yes and no. While we have a variety of volunteer positions available in the evenings and weekends, all of the mandatory training happens during CFUV staff hours (Monday-Friday 10 AM-5 PM).

Q: Okay, I’ve completed an application. Now what?
A: The next step is to sign up for a CFUV Info Session. There you will find out more information about CFUV as an organization, and what kinds of training opportunities and trainings we offer. The Info Session is a group session with lots of time for Q&A in person. If you are having troubles signing up, or you have further questions, contact our Operations Director at

Q: I want to be a volunteer, but I can’t see myself hosting a program. Are volunteers obligated to go on-air?
A: While we are always looking for new programmers, volunteers are not obligated to go on-air. We have a bunch of other opportunities available to choose from!

Q: I’m interested in volunteering, but I just don’t have a radio voice.
A: We have good news for you! We are looking for volunteers who are passionate about radio, podcasts, music and arts. None of our volunteer positions call for a “radio voice.”

Q: Hmm, okay this is sounding cool. I think I want to volunteer, but I’m not entirely sure yet. How can I get more information?
A: After completing a volunteer application, you can sign up for a CFUV Info Session. There you’ll learn more about the organization and specifics about volunteering and training. After the Info Session, you should have a stronger sense of what to expect and decide whether or not you can commit to volunteering.

Q: I know that you’re a volunteer organization, but are there paid opportunities?
A: CFUV has a few core, permanent staff: Station Manager, Program Director, Operations Director, and Music Director. Throughout the year (and depending on grants) we will also have a variety of other full- and part-time positions available. We usually have at least one UVic Work Study position, you can find out more information about that program here. Check in on our website, or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to keep up to date with job postings.

Q: I already know what I’m doing. Do I have to do the training?
A: On-air hosts at CFUV all undergo a broadcast training process that covers internal CFUV and external CRTC policies. Anyone hoping to get on-air must undergo this training process, even volunteers with previous broadcast or production experience.

Q: Wow. CFUV rocks! I dig it, but I’m not sure volunteering is for me. How else can I support you?
A: You can also support CFUV by donating! We have an annual funding drive, but we will also graciously accept donations throughout the year. HUGE thank you in advance for the support!
