Are you looking for new ways you can use your time and talents? Join the movement of over 30,000 volunteers each year who are working together to help release children from poverty in Jesus’ name!

Compassion partners with artists, conferences, festivals, and events happening all across the United States. At each of these events, you can play a vital role in helping children connect with a Sponsor. Each event is unique, so there are several opportunities you can choose from to make a difference in the life of a child, right from your home state. Below you can read more about the various types of volunteer roles and age requirements to help you better understand how you can get involved.

Volunteer Age Requirements

Ages 10-15: Welcome to work any volunteer role except Table Volunteer, VR Experience Volunteer and Volunteer Entrance Host. Must have permission from a Parent or Legal Guardian, and a Parent or Legal Guardian must be present and volunteering alongside them.

Ages 16-17: Welcome to work any volunteer position. Must have permission from a Parent or Legal Guardian and can participate alone or with a group without a Parent or Legal Guardian present.

Ages 18+: Welcome to volunteer for all volunteer positions with no Parent or Legal Guardian requirements.

We love the passion and joy younger children bring in wanting to help children find sponsors, but due to financial accountability and liability, we are not able to allow anyone under the age of 10 years old to volunteer.
