Volunteer paperwork takes about two weeks to process and approve. After your paperwork is processed, you will be contacted with detailed information as it relates to the next steps based on the opportunities you selected.


Due to the nature of our work, certain volunteer positions must successfully complete a criminal background check every three years. Make-A-Wish does not employ or utilize as a volunteer any individual who has been convicted of a crime that (a) victimizes children, (b) is sexual in nature, or (c) involves violence, fraud or significant theft. Please contact us with any questions related to past convictions and/or our background check screening process. 


All volunteers are required to complete Make-A-Wish University online training courses, specific to their volunteer interest.

Wish Granting 101 volunteer training is mandatory for those interested in becoming a Wish Granter. Please browse through our calendar of events for upcoming volunteer trainings and locations near you. All attendees are asked to register for the training.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. ”
