Our Wish Discovery volunteers have the distinct honor of helping our kiddos discover their one true wish. This is one of our most emotionally demanding volunteer roles at Make-A-Wish, and it takes a special person to carry out this important part of our mission.
If you are interested in becoming a Wish Discovery volunteer, you must complete a pre-qualification interview first. The interview is held here at our office and only takes 15 minutes.
Once you complete your interview, our staff will let you know if you qualify to sign up for Wish Discovery volunteer training.
Pre-qualification interviews typically happen about a month before Wish Discovery training. The next ones begin August 20, 2018. We have several days and times open to accommodate different schedules. Find a time slot that works for you here.
Wish Discovery volunteer trainings take place 3 times per year: January, April and September. The next training is:
September 22nd 10:30am to 1:30pm

Please note that you won't be officially approved to attend Wish Discovery training until you complete your interview and Make-A-Wish staff has informed you that you have been qualified to move on to the next step.
Wish Designers have a unique opportunity with our wish kids and their families. They get to plan the ultimate party to make sure our kiddos know their wish is coming true. They also help with send-offs and welcome homes as well as any other enhancements that make the wish experience memorable for our kids.
Wish Design training does not require a pre-qualification interview. Sign up for Wish Design Training here.
