Ready to Volunteer?

Do you already receive emails from Holt about your sponsored child, donating, adoption information, volunteering or inspirational stories ...

Great news! You already have an email address on file with Holt, and your process to register as a volunteer and join the online volunteer community will be a step faster! If you've volunteered in the past, we have a new process this year. It will take about 15-20 minutes to register, then you will have access to all the concert dates, training resources, photos and the ability to connect with other volunteers!

Are you new to Holt?

We're glad you're here! Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer. Once you register in Holt's online volunteer community — this will take about 20 minutes — you can select which concert or concerts you want to volunteer at, access training materials, read about what it's like to volunteer at Winter Jam and more!


We are happy to report that during our 2016-2017 Winter Jam tours, over 7,800 Holt volunteers served nearly 55,000 hours advocating for children! From coast to coast, their efforts contributed to bringing in nearly 6,000 new sponsors for children around the world!

“Thank you for your amazing work — we are so touched and inspired by your heart for children. Your advocacy is vital in ensuring that we meet the needs of vulnerable children all around the world. The future looks brighter because of people like you and we can’t wait to see what we will accomplish together next year! — Alycia Fahr-Zarlons, Volunteer Coordinator

Want to be a Holt Volunteer at Winter Jam West next Fall of 2018?

In order to be a Holt Volunteer, you will need to join Holt’s volunteer community! This will give you access to all of the Holt volunteer opportunities around the United States and those specific to your area!  You will receive an email notification when new opportunities become available and will also gain access to special unadvertised concert events!

Volunteer Requirements

To register to volunteer at a Holt-sponsored event, you must:

  • Be at least 16 years old
  • Have a valid email address
  • Accept the terms of Holt’s Volunteer Work Agreement

Required training after registration includes:


  • Adoptive Parent Volunteers With Children Under 16: We are seeking the support of adoptive families to work tables at the events this year! Holt allows each adoptive parent volunteer to bring up to two of their own minor children as guests to accompany. Children under 16 are not permitted to manage the payment information on our sign-up forms so we ask for your help with this compliance. When registering, there is a place on the form to indicate that you would like to bring your children when you volunteer.
  • Paid Access Through the Volunteer Entrance for Non-Volunteers: Some volunteer groups bring members of their party who are not eligible to volunteer (i.e. underage). You can request venue access for your underage group members by contacting the volunteer coordinator directly for approval. All non-volunteers are required to pay the event ticket fee in cash at the volunteer door to the Holt on-site tour representative. Please confirm the cost with the Volunteer Coordinator prior to arrival.

Register a Group of Volunteers

A registered volunteer may add additional “guest volunteers” as part of a group during registration. These volunteers must also adhere to the above volunteer requirements.

  • Please do not add guests who have already registered themselves.
  • Due to security at the venues, volunteers must provide first and last names of EVERY guest coming through the volunteer entrance when registering. This includes guest volunteers, paid ticket holders accompanying volunteers and adoptee minors entering for free.
  • You may bring as many committed guest volunteers as we have space for! You are now able to edit the number of guests in your registration through our volunteer online community.
