Thank you for your interest in volunteering/working on staff at Holden Village! For more than 60 years, Holden Staff and Volunteers have served as the backbone of Holden Village, giving of their time and talents to create this place of welcome. If you have a few weeks, months, or years in which you are looking to experience something new, Holden might be the place for you. Holden Village offers a variety of employment and volunteer positions with various time commitments.

SHORT TERM VOLUNTEER positions - requires a 2+ week commitment. This position receives room and board in exchange for their work, and additional benefits depending on the length of stay. Applications for short-term positions are accepted throughout the year and availability for each position varies.

SEASONAL HEAD VOLUNTEER positions - are leadership positions that require a 3+ month commitment, typically between May and September only; however, we are now accepting seasonal head applications for Head Cooks and a few other positions year-round. These positions receive a small stipend, room, board, utilies, and other benefits commensurate with length of stay.

LONG-TERM VOLUNTEER positions - require a 1+ year commitment. These positions receive a stipend, room, board, utilities, insurance, and other benefits.

EMPLOYEE positions - require a 2+ year commitment. These positions receive a salary, room, board, insurance, and other benefits.

CONTRACTOR positions - Holden seeks local individuals to assist with skilled labor on-call. Contact staffing@holdenvillage.org if you live in the area and are interested in serving as a contractor.

FAMILIES - Families with kids 15 and under have the opportunity to work on short-term staff in the summer through our Family Work OptionFor families interested in being on staff for 1+ years, please first contact staffing@holdenvillage.org to inquire about this possibility. Housing for families is limited and availability for families to be on staff varies over time. During the off-season, at this time we do not have the capacity to support short-term staff with kids 15 and under.

1/2 Work 1/2 PAY POSITIONS Half-work, half-pay is an option available only in the off-season (September-May) with the exception of the month of January and the major holidays.
