Street teamers must be at least 18 years of age, complete all required training, comply with all WBUR standards and pass the application process.

What is the time commitment to be a WBURExtra street teamer?
There is no required time commitment. After completing the training, all street teamers are welcome to volunteer on a reasonable number of dates and times.

Can I consider this as an internship?

College students in the Boston area can consider working for the street team as an internship position after they are hired, so long as they volunteer for at least 2 events per semester.

What if I don't live in the Boston area? Can I still be a WBURExtra street teamer?
