Make-A-Wish® Hawaii Wish Assist Internship- Spring 2024
WISH ASSIST INTERNSHIP
More than 1,300 children from around the world wish to visit Hawaii each year. These wishes range from meeting a real-life mermaid to surfing with Bethany Hamilton. Our Wish Assist department works with each child’s local chapter to bring his or her one true wish to life. The Wish Assist intern will work with the team to plan and coordinate these wishes to visit Hawaii. Daily coordination duties include:
- Securing wish paperwork
- Wish development
- Making travel arrangements and itineraries
- Data entry and communication with vendors and originating chapters
- Support and attendance at training sessions and some events also required
