Volunteer

To volunteer for Deliver the Dream, please start by filling out our volunteer application below.  After your application is submitted, you will be contacted by a Deliver the Dream staff member to schedule an in-person volunteer orientation. If you do not live in South Florida (Palm Beach, Broward, or Miami-Dade Counties), your orientation will be completed over the phone. Once your orientation and background check is complete, you will be added to our volunteer email list and be informed, via email, of any volunteer opportunities. Deliver the Dream has three types of volunteer opportunites:

  1. Retreat volunteers Retreat volunteers stay on site (food and lodging is provided) for the entire three-day, two-night weekend retreat (Friday-Sunday). Each retreat volunteer will be paired with one participating family and serve as their family pal. Family pals tend to their family’s needs, get to know them, sit with them at all meals, and make sure they are having a great time. Retreat volunteers might also assist with leading program activities such as beading, canoeing, karaoke, or teen movie night. Volunteering on a retreat is an extremely powerful and rewarding experience!
  1. Office volunteers We are always in need of office volunteers to assist with a variety of duties that help us prepare for our retreat program and for our special events. Office volunteers assist Monday through Friday during our general operating hours. Office volunteer opportunities include:
    • Gift wrapping
    • Compiling information kits
    • Filing and stuffing envelopes for mailings
    • Assembling craft projects
    • Contacting potential donors for auction items
  1. Special events volunteers Throughout the year, Deliver the Dream hosts a variety of exciting events to raise funds that support our retreat program. Events, such as our Denim and Diamonds Gala, require a significant number of our special event volunteers, responsibilities can include:
    • Event set-up and breakdown
    • Silent and live auction help
    • Registration Assistance
    • Greeting and directing guests
    • Raffle ticket sales
    • Other miscellaneous tasks
