Volunteer Information

Thank you for considering volunteering at the Polar Express! Each December, we rely on the spirit of hundreds of volunteers to bring our magical journey alive for over 3,600 passengers who visit our ‘North Pole.’

At this time we have all the elves we need for the 2017 Polar Express. If you would like to volunteer for the 2018 Polar Express, check back to this page after Labor Day 2018!


Volunteers, please help us reach our goal of $150,000!

This is our 16th anniversary of the Polar Express.  In honor of this milestone, we are hoping to raise $150,000 at this year’s event.  We hope you will help us achieve this goal by rallying support for our fundraising effort.  If every volunteer raised $20 we would add $15,000 to the proceeds of the event!  100% of the volunteer fund will go directly to programs for kids! 

We’ve created a Polar Express Fundraising page for all volunteers and we’ve provided the email content and links for you to register and request donations from your family and friends to benefit VCTF.  Sign up and start your individual fundraising page HERE.
