At Make-A-Wish, we grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
This volunteer position will assist the Greater Bay Area chapter, which grants wishes to kids in 17 counties of Northwest California. Our office is in Oakland, and we cover the Bay Area, Silicon Valley, and from Monterey to the Oregon border.
We want to tell the stories of our wish families on our social media, website, and newsletters, so people can celebrate the wishes that our kids have granted, and get more people involved. Our Marketing and Communications team will conduct phone or Zoom interviews with the families, and then we are looking for volunteers to help transcribe the interviews, so we can use the quotes in our marketing materials.
This could also include writing closed captioning for YouTube videos.
This is a virtual volunteer opportunity that can be done from anywhere. Professional transcription experience is preferred. If you are bilingual in Spanish and English, that is a plus!
We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Make-A-Wish is a charitable non-profit organization whose purpose is to fulfill magical wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses. Proceeds from the Make-A-Wish fundraising efforts are used to fulfill children's dreams and create special memories for the entire family.
