Our volunteer application process is as follows:
- Complete the Volunteer Application and submit it via email to Ibyhagrref@fai.jvfu.bet, fax to 702-932-2815, or mail to 9950 Covington Cross, Las Vegas, NV 89144. Once your application is received, our Volunteer Coordinator, Rachel Nelson, will contact you regarding next steps and more information. Volunteers of all ages are welcome.
- Complete the online National Background check. The background check, completed entirely online, costs $26.03 and we ask that the volunteer cover that cost.
- Attend a "Volunteer Fair," a mandatory orientation to Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada. The Fairs 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!
- If you are interested in becoming a Wish Granter, you must complete the above. In addition, we ask you schedule an informal interview with Rachel Nelson 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.
To assure the safety of our children, we perform a national criminal background check on all of our applicants through LexisNexis for the cost of $26.03 to the volunteer. You must be 18 years or older to volunteer. 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.
