Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers assist Make-A-Wish® U.S. Virgin Islands in fulfilling our mission in various roles from wish granting to special events. Below, please find a listing of volunteer opportunities within Make-A-Wish U.S. Virgin Islands.

For volunteer opportunities, please contact Melanie Holley at 340-513-8213 or zubyyrl@fsynjvfu.bet.


Wish Granter

Wish Granters work in teams of two as a liaison between a wish family and Make-A-Wish. They help determine a child’s wish and play an instrumental role in helping to turn the wish into reality. You must be at least 21 years old, complete Wish Granter training, and be able to make 2 or more visits to the family during the course of the wish process. 

Special Events Volunteer

Help out at various special events throughout our territory. Day-of-event activities range from live and silent auction support to helping with registration.

Speaker

Increase awareness of Make-A-Wish by joining our Speakers Bureau and speaking from your own personal experience at local schools, chamber meetings, and interest groups. Prior Make-A-Wish volunteer experience required.

Airport Greeter

Meet and welcome wish families at the airport, assist with baggage and rental car arrangements upon arrival, and make them feel comfortable as they begin their magical wish experience.
