Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering is a great way to get involved in the community. We invite you to share the power of a wish®, whether it's a few hours each month or a few days each year. Make-A-Wish® relies on the dedication and passion of our volunteers to help fulfill our mission.

Wish-Granting Volunteers

Wish granters work directly with the children and their families to determine the child's one true wish. These volunteer play an instrumental role in helping to plan, create and fulfill the child's wish. These specially trained volunteers make the wish an unforgettable experience through their attention to detail and imagination. Wish granters volunteer their time around their own schedule. You must be at least 21 years old to become a wish granter. 

Airport Greeters

Meet and welcome wish families from all around the world into the state of Florida and make them feel comfortable when preparing for their magical wish experience. For many of our wish children and their families, it is a first-time experience. As an airport greeter, you will help aid in the process!

Special Events

Each year Make-A-Wish holds various fundraisers and special events with the extraordinary support of our volunteers. They plan, organize and implement successful fundraising events by working on event committees, helping out on the day of event and/or participating in the event. These signature events contribute remarkably to our Chapter's ability to continue granting magical wishes.

Get involved with Kids for Wish Kids®

This program is geared towards students (elementary thru graduate students) looking for community service involvement with the primary focus of raising funds to benefit Make-A-Wish. As a volunteer you can assist on a committee to advise schools with such fundraising activities as bake sales, talent shows and school dances, just to name a few. Students are encouraged to be as creative as possible!

Periodically, we are in need of volunteers that are able to assist with office duties, administrative tasks and special projects. This position is based upon current need.
