Prometheus volunteers do everything from lobbying in DC to building radio towers to designing fliers to making food. Live in the Philadelphia Region? - we need you! We have both short and long-term volunteer opportunities and we would love to meet you. Attending a volunteer orientation is the first step to supporting our work locally and offers a great opportunity to meet others working to change the media landscape, hear more about our work, and find a way for you to play a part. Orientation dates through December are below. Complete a Volunteer Interest Form. Register today!
A list of our current opening can be found here.

Join us today and learn more about our work and how you can help 1,000 new stations get on the air.
Three times a year we recruit and "hire" interns seeking to gain useful skills and a meaningful experience in the movement to democratize the airwaves and the media. We are currently recruiting interns for the summer session.
The Prometheus Radio Project builds participatory radio as a tool for social justice organizing and a voice for community expression. To that end, we demystify media policy and technology, advocate for a more just media system, and help grassroots organizations build communications infrastructure to strengthen their communities and movements.
We envision a world in which the media is not a means to limit democratic participation, but a way for communities and movements to express themselves and struggle for justice. We imagine a nationwide community radio infrastructure made up of hundreds of independent, locally-orientated stations, part of a global movement to put media in the hands of the people.
We are seeking summer Interns for the following positions:
When: Summer internships are from May 29 to August 23. Precise start and end dates can be negotiated, however, there will be a mandatory orientation the week of May 27. Fall internships will also be available.
Where: Philadelphia, PA
Time commitment: Flexible, 15-30 hours per week is desired. Please indicate how many hours you can commit to in your cover letter.
Compensation / Benefits: A limited amount of funding is available to support individuals who have a financial need that would otherwise prevent participation in this internship. If this is the case for you, please attach with your application a separate document titled "Financial Need Statement" detailing your income and expenses and the amount of aid requested. This will not affect your consideration for the position.
Interns who are university students are eligible for course credits. Other benefits include a rewarding experience, training, a letter of recommendation, ability to travel with Prometheus, and the option of paying the premium to access our health care program.
