WEDU in West Central Florida has launched the Blue Sky Project, gathering a “volunteer consortium of creative professionals” to assist the station, according to a statement (PDF). The PBS station is hoping to develop initiatives drawing on the experience of volunteers who are currently without full-time employment. Tasks include advertising, communications, graphic design, public relations, special event planning and Web design. In return for assisting the station, the work will help volunteers hone professional skills, contribute to their resumes and “provide stimulating projects in an invigorating environment,” the statement adds.
