More than 1,700 trained volunteers generously give their time and energy to share the power of a wish®. Our volunteers become involved in the mission through a variety of capacities - from granting wishes to event support and other specialty roles - and are an integral part of delivering the mission of Make-A-Wish®.

You can help make the wishes of children come true in your community when you become a volunteer for Make-A-Wish®  Illinois. Volunteers are 21 and older and include men and women who live and work throughout Illinois. Time commitments and volunteer needs vary by community.
