STEP 3 - BACKGROUND CHECK
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.
STEP 4 - ATTEND VOLUNTEER TRAINING
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.
