Types of Volunteers
We match volunteers to positions based on ability, interests and availability. Consider your goals, skills and purpose when you volunteer for the opportunity that best suits you. Note: Many volunteer positions require a background check plus ongoing training.
Airport Greeter – Airport greeters meet and welcome wish families at the airport, assist arriving wish families with baggage and locate their rental car, or help departing wish families with check in and security. These volunteers help ease any concerns the wish family has about navigating the airport and airline travel by making them feel comfortable as they begin their wish experience.
– Special events volunteers assist in planning, organizing, and implementing successful fundraising events by working on event committees, helping out on the event day, and/or participating in the event.
Translator/Interpreter – Translator or interpreter volunteers help facilitate wish experiences for non-English-speaking families. Translators have the option of becoming fully-trained wish granting volunteers, or they can provide short-term support on an as-needed basis.
Wish Granting Volunteers – Support local wish kids with your skills and talents. From room makeovers to helping a kid on a shopping spree or working with our staff to host a wish kid party, we are looking for people with a passion for our mission and excellent customer service.
