Volunteering at Wilder Foundation is rewarding, impactful and flexible: volunteer on a one-time, part-time or regular basis as a team, with a buddy or solo. You have a chance to work with youth, older adults and families who are receiving or participating in services and programs, lend a hand at our community and fundraising events, or work directly with Wilder staff. Internship opportunities are sometimes available within our programs and services as well. Whatever you choose to do as a volunteer, you can make a tremendous impact on the people we serve in the greater Saint Paul area and beyond.
