*Please Note: Make-A-Wish Arizona remains focused on keeping our wish kids and families, our community supporters, our volunteers and our employees safe. 

That is why, in support of current medical and public concerns, we have made the difficult decision to move Make-A-Wish Arizona events like our volunteer orientations to virtual orientations. These events have limited availability so please sign up asap.


If you are still interested in starting your Volunteer journey, you can sign up for a future volunteer orientation or training by registering through our Wish & Volunteer Center.

To create a volunteer account, please click here then select "New Volunteer Sign Up." You will need to add your information then select "Sign Up."

Being a Make-A-Wish® Arizona volunteer is a great way to help us share the value and inspiration of a wish experience with our community! 

There are two ways to volunteer: 
  • General Volunteer: Includes events, office opportunities, community events 
  • Wish Granter Volunteer: Wish Granters meet with our wish kids and families to help determine, plan and execute the wish experience
Wish Granter Qualifications:
  • Must be 21 years of age or older. 
  • Must order and pass a background check (if you have not had one with us in the past three years) prior to becoming a wish granter. Note: Background check instructions are sent after wish granter training and results are automatically sent to Make-A-Wish Arizona. So that we may grant more wishes, we strive to minimize administrative costs. If you are unable to pay for your own background check, please contact us for possible payment arrangements. Learn more about the volunteer process and current opportunities at arizona.wish.org/volunteer. 
Each of our volunteers must attend a one-hour volunteer orientation info session. Additional training on another day is required for all Wish Granter volunteers. If you have questions, please email volunteer@arizona.wish.org.

Send a message of hope

With many of our wishes postponed, we want you to help keep our wish kids’ spirits high! Write, video or photograph yourself sharing a message of hope and post to any of our Make-A-Wish Arizona social media channels at @makeawishaz (tag @makeawisharizona on Instagram) and use the hashtag #WishesAreWaiting.

You can help bring hope to a child who needs it!
