KSKQ is a volunteer, community-sponsored organization. All members of the community who participate in the operation and programming of the station, or who use its facilities on a regular basis are expected to become members and to maintain their memberships on a yearly basis for as long as they are affiliated with the station. Limited scholarships and/or alternative ways of providing income to the station may be available for those who cannot afford to pay their dues directly.

The Volunteer Request notebook contains request forms for committee chairs and others to use to specify volunteer needs. The notebook will be available to those members of the community who are looking for volunteer opportunities. Requests to the community to find the needed volunteers will also be made.
