Volunteer Information

Free the Captives' Freedom Fest and 5K is open to the public as an awareness event on Human Trafficking in Houston. The 5k course is a large, spread out course around Mason Park. Therefore, we will need plenty of volunteers to make this event a success!

Below you can sign up to volunteer for the 5K as well as for Freedom Fest. Just click on the volunteer position that interests you the most! Your help is greatly appreciated! You can sign up for more than one volunteer position. 

HOST A FOOD BOOTH OR GAME BOOTH: 

One of the main ways we draw in festival participants from the surrounding neighborhood is by offering free games and FREE food! We want them to come, have fun AND learn about human trafficking so that they can keep their families safe. We rely on our church and community partners to make all this free food and games happen!
