Become A Volunteer

Become a Volunteer

We rely on more than 300 volunteers throughout Southern Nevada to help grant the wishes of children battling life-threatening medical conditions. Every volunteer plays a vital role in helping us achieve our mission. Share your heart. Volunteer today!

Our volunteer application process is as follows:

  1. Complete the Volunteer Application and submit it via email to, fax to 702-367-0301, or mail to 9950 Covington Cross, Las Vegas, NV 89144. Once your application is received, our Volunteer Manager, Rachel Nelson, will contact you regarding next steps and more information. Volunteers of all ages are welcome.
  2. Certain positions require the volunteer to complete the online National Background check. The background check is completed entirely online and we ask that the volunteer covers the initial cost. See 'Background Checks' for more information below.
  3. Attend a Volunteer Fair, a mandatory orientation to Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada. The Volunteer Fair will acquaint you with the mission and values of Make-A-Wish, as well as provide insight into how to use your unique skills to make our organization successful. Interested volunteers must attend a Volunteer Fair before serving the organization. They are offered biweekly!
  4. If you are interested in becoming a Wish Granter, you must complete the above steps and attend an additional training. We ask that you schedule an informal interview with a member of the Wish Team prior to attending a Wish Granter Training Session. You must be 18 years or older to be a Wish Granter. 

** Steps 1-4 must be completed if you wish to be a Wish Granter.

Background Checks

To assure the safety of our children, we perform a national criminal background check on all of our applicants that are interested in Wish Granting, Airport Greeting and volunteering in the office. We perform this background check through First Advantage. The cost of each background check can vary and is dependent upon where you have previously resided. We do ask that the volunteer covers this cost. You must be 18 years or older to volunteer in a position that requires a background check. 

All information in the volunteer application, and any acquired through the background check, remains confidential and is used only for screening and placement purposes. 

If a blemish appears on a background check it may be reviewed by our management team to determine if acceptance of a volunteer application is in the Chapter's best interest.
