Although the need for volunteers will vary by country, opportunities can be found in every community we serve around the globe. Opportunities to volunteer may include being a wish granter, office worker, translator, fundraiser, speaker or event staff member. Wish-granting volunteers work in teams of 2-3 to help grant life-changing wishes. Make-A-Wish trains these volunteers to help children identify their most heartfelt wish – and to bring the experience to life in a way that exceeds every expectation.
To provide the best experience possible, we require all potential volunteers to undergo an assessment. Our work involves children and sensitive information, so select volunteer positions require a criminal background check and evaluation.
