Types of Volunteers

Intern – Please see our internship page for more information. 

Office – Assist with miscellaneous projects at the office, including phone calls, wish research, mailings, etc. Volunteers can determine the frequency with which they serve, but they must have daytime availability during office hours: Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM.

Special Events – Serve at events that raise funds to grant wishes. Event duties may include, but are not limited to, planning committees, registration table, answering phones, asking for donations, set-up and break-down, etc.

Translator/Interpreter – Help facilitate wish experiences for non-English-speaking families. Translators have the option of becoming trained wish-granting volunteers, or they can provide short-term support on an as-needed basis. We ask that Spanish speakers become trained Wish Granters since this is one of our greatest needs.

Wish Granter – As a member of a wish team, wish granters meet with the family, help the wish child determine the wish and act as a liaison between Make-A-Wish staff and the wish family during the wish process. Wish granters should commit to the wish throughout the process must be a minimum of 18 years old. Attendance at an in-depth training session is required.
