Internship Opportunities

Make-A-Wish offers students an excellent way to gain real world experience in a challenging and fun work environment.

Our chapter works with students year-round who are looking to gain experience in program services (wish-granting), development (fundraising and events) communications, social media, marketing, special events and volunteer management. Internships are available in our Memphis and Little Rock offices. We request a 10 to 20 hour per week commitment for the duration of two quarters/one semester by potential internship applicants. Make-A-Wish internships are without pay, but we do work with students to provide college credit for their experience.

Requirements: Internship application materials, background check and a staff interview. Training is provided in the office by the managing staff member, 4-6 month minimum time commitment.

To apply for an internship, please send your resume and cover letter to the Volunteer Coordinator in your area:

Allie Lindsey (nyvafqrl@zvqfbhgu.jvfu.bet), TN/MS Volunteer Coordinator

Mallory Lindsey (zyvaqfrl@zvqfbhgu.jvfu.bet), AR Volunteer Coordinator

When I accepted my internship position at Make-A-Wish, I had no idea just how deeply it would impact me in the way that it did. Not only did I gain real-world experience and develop a new set of skills in both communications and marketing, but I also gained a greater understanding of what it means to become a part of something bigger than myself. ”
