Volunteer

Join a caring community of volunteers who transform lives. Together, we can make countless wishes come true.  

Your time and unique talents are critical to bringing strength and hope to wish kids when they need it the most. In fact, our volunteers are at the heart of every wish experience. 

Make-A-Wish volunteers consider their work impactful and meaningful. And, their efforts are rewarded—not in dollars or cents, but in the incredible difference they make in the lives of our wish kids. Volunteers even have the freedom to choose when and how they would like to help transform lives in our community. 

We understand that you want to volunteer but might not know where your skills and talents best lie. Check out our volunteer opportunities and see where you can best help make wishes come true. 

Volunteer Types

Translator/Interpreter

Help facilitate wish experiences for non-English-speaking families. Translators attend wish visits and phone calls, but they are not directly involved in planning wishes. 

 

Office Volunteer

Assist with various projects at our chapter office, including phone calls, mailings and research. 

Events Volunteer

Plan, organize and implement successful fundraising events by working on committees, helping on event day and/or participating in the event. 

 

Skill-Based Volunteer

Use your professional skills and knowledge on an as-needed basis to provide much-needed skills such as reading and writing in multiple languages, graphic design, photography, landscaping and more. 

Ambassador Volunteer

Serve as an ambassador of Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee and willing to share your experience with the organization as a wish family, corporate partner, volunteer, etc. To increase support and spread awareness of our mission. 

Airport Greeter

Meet arriving wish families at the airport to welcome them, assist with baggage, and help locate their rental car. They also 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.
