There is no minimum age requirement for conducting a wish list drive. However, if you are under the age of 13, you will need your parent's permission and have them help you fill out the Start a Wish List Drive form.
Conducting a wish list drive does indeed count as community service experience. It is a simple way to increase your community service experience while helping our community's nonprofit organizations receive the in-kind donations they need to help support those in need. At the end of each wish list drive, students will receive a summary of all of the wish list donations they helped to generated for their chosen charity. Holding a wish list drive will also make students fourth grade and up eligible to apply to volunteer with us in-house or with one of our partnered charities.
Student Wish List Project does not have formal internships. However, we do have year-round volunteer opportunities for students in-house with us as well as with some of our partnered charities. Any student in fourth grade and up who has conducted a wish list drive is eligible to apply to volunteer.
Any student in fourth grade and up who has already conducted a wish list drive for one of our partnered charities is eligible to apply to volunteer. We do not currently offer formal internships but do have year-round volunteer opportunities with our partnered charities and in-house with us. Please note that only students who have already conducted a wish list drive are eligible to apply.
