As representatives of Make-A-Wish Arizona, it is important that all staff and interns reflect a positive and professional image at all times. During business hours or when representing Make-A-Wish Arizona, you are expected to present a clean, well-pressed, appropriate and professional appearance.

While Make-A-Wish Arizona internships offer a wide range of real-world experiences to help you grow professionally, please understand all of the positions below require voluntary time and effort and are unpaid internships.

Plan Your Fundraiser for Wish Kids!

The Kids For Wish Kids program is an opportunity for local kids and teens to help make wishes come true for children living in their own community.

Students who launch the Kids For Wish Kids program in their communities can gain real-world experience in community relations, teamwork, leadership, public speaking and marketing. It is a perfect option for students with community service requirements, service-oriented clubs such as Key Clubs, and teenagers who just want to give back!

Contact Brenna Stewart, Development and Events Manager, for tools to get started with creating a fundraising project that can be completed by an individual, club, group of friends, or community youth group.
