Participating in the Kids for Wish Kids program is beneficial not only to the children who will receive the gift of a wish, but also to the students who help make those wishes possible. Lessons learned include the importance of community involvement and philanthropy, leadership skills, building self-esteem, and teamwork. This all happens while helping others and having fun.
There are several ways that your school or youth group can get involved with Make-A-Wish: from hosting a coin drive, having a jump-a-thon, hosting a school carnival or making a star wall on campus, the possibilities are endless. You can choose which opportunity will work best for your school and we can help make your event a success.
We also have a Youth Volunteer Project program – a unique opportunity for students to complete community service requirements while helping make wishes come true for children facing life-threatening medical conditions. The program can be used for a variety of elementary & middle school philanthropy requirements.
