Wish Granter Training

January 20, 2016

Time :

5:45 to 8:45 p.m.

Location :



This training is for volunteers interested in becoming Wish Granters. Wish granters work with our wish children to help them determine their most heartfelt wish. Wish granters then work with the staff to help make these wishes come true. Bilingual wish granters are especially needed for this coming year. 

Time commitment varies, but is approximately 3 hours per month based on granting 3 wishes per year. Wish Granters must have strong communication skills, and be able to respond to wish families and staff within 48 hours. Volunteers are asked to complete 2 online trainings prior to attending the in-person training.

  • “Perhaps it was coincidence that from the time of the wish reveal until the trip, her health improved dramatically, and that the blood counts we were watching had stabilized, but I'd like to think not. Knowing that her magical wish was coming gave her new stores of energy and joy that we didn't think possible." #hopeismedicine
