AIRSLA Volunteer Video on YouTube Check out this outstanding video, produced by former AIRS Vice President Steve Heller, if you're thinking of helping us out or if you'd like to see short clips of some of our volunteers in action.

You can get additional information on our needs by watching our Recruitment Video on YouTube. The easiest way to volunteer or obtain additional specific information is to call 818-860-2806.

Volunteer Director

AIRSLA badly needs a Volunteer Director to manage all those people involved in producing content for our web site. If you have the necessary people-handling and organizational skills we can guarantee that you'll derive a great deal of satisfaction in providing vital audio material for our network of sight-disadvantaged listeners. Duties of the Volunteer Director include:

SDP Director

AIRS is looking for a volunteer to coordinate the efforts of the crew of Voiceover Professionals who produce our popular Short Daily Podcast (SDP) series. Sometimes known as "The Daily AIRS," the SDPs feature short readings of current topical interest on a twice daily schedule seven days a week, so a substantial number of people are involved. The volunteers are very dedicated and professional and don't really require much in the way of direction, only an occasional nudge to get them back on the track. Your duties would include:

Producing Your Own Podcast

Does anybody in LA actually like to commute? If you don't relish driving to our palatial Tarzana studio to read or engineer a podcast; if you have a computer, a quiet room and a USB microphone you have all you need to produce your own podcasts. Simply tell us of your availability by clicking the Volunteer link at the left, send us a sample recording, and choose a periodical from the list below. According to a schedule that we'll negotiate, you'll send us periodic recordings and we'll take care of the rest! You must make a commitment to a regular recording schedule and may wish to take advantage of in-studio training or our on-line video training course if you need it. Or, if you live within comfortable commuting distance (about 500 feet in Los Angeles these days), you can still choose to record in our studio.

Our first priority is to re-start these projects which currently do not have reader/producers:

Here are some periodicals we'd like to start new projects for:

Finally, There are openings in our Daily AIRS podcast series. Choose a topic and a weekday for your show. We need readers for Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays to fill out our two-a-day schedule. You can pick your own topic and source or choose one of the following:

Like to Manage Group Activities?

The Readers Digest has a wealth of material each month. It's far too much for any single person to read alone. so in the past it's been handled as a cooperative project. The team members, dedicated VO professionals, are still around, but we need someone to step up to the job of leading the effort. This involves skimming each new edition, making reading assignments to group members, and coordinating timely transmission of completed audio files from the members to AIRS for posting. Get in touch with Joe Jurca to step up to this important and rewarding project!
