Description Contact Nonprofit Directly
Make-A-Wish Wyoming is actively seeking volunteers in the Jackson area. These volunteers would have the opportunity to help with wishes of Wyoming wish kids and provide support for “wish assists,” which take place when wish kids from other states and countries wish to visit Wyoming. Interested candidates are welcome to be involved in one or both.
Wish granting involves working closely with local wish kids and families as representatives of Make-A-Wish Wyoming. These volunteers are involved in many aspects of the wish process, including helping explore the heart of the child’s wish, assisting families with paperwork if needed and celebrating wish milestones along the way.
For wish assists, help is needed with greeting visiting wish families at the airport as they arrive in Jackson, enhancing the wish experience by preparing surprises for wish families and building relationships with vendors in the Jackson area. There may also be an occasional opportunity to act as the local host if a wish needs additional support in Jackson. These volunteers would work closely with chapter staff to ensure that every wish surpasses the wish child and family’s expectations.
Ideal volunteers are compassionate and creative, with strong communication skills and a commitment to high quality. They share the goal of ensuring an incredible wish experience for every child and every family.
