We're hosting a wish granter volunteer training in Southwest Virginia!
This training will be held to train wish granter volunteers primarily in the Danville, Martinsville and South Boston communities. Wish granters work in teams of two to help make wishes come true. This role involves interviewing the child and family to determine the wish, working with staff to help fulfill the wish, helping the child stay engaged while waiting for the wish to happen and throwing a wish party when the wish is granted. Time commitment varies, depending on the type of wish and number of wishes you are involved with. The wish interview and granting almost always take place in the evening or on a weekend. We are looking for volunteers who can make a long-term commitment (minimum of one year). (Minimum age: 21)
