Wish Granter Training

September 20, 2016

Time :

5:30-8 p.m.

Location :


Make-A-Wish Illinois is hosting a free training session for wish-granting volunteers. To attend the training, potential volunteers must complete the volunteer application and online preparation before the session; therefore RSVP is required in advance. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Reserve a spot by contacting Cicely Tatum at or 800.978.9474, x413. All volunteers must be over 21 and submit an application, reference and background check; complete an online and brief in-person training to begin granting wishes.

Wish-granting volunteers will work in teams of two to help grant the wishes of children in their community. Volunteers plan and carry out wishes from start to finish with support from the Make-A-Wish staff. Wish granters are asked to give 10-12 hours per month to grant at least three wishes per year.
