Your Volunteer Journey

Change lives... become a volunteer!

You can help make the wishes of children with critical illnesses come true in your community when you become a volunteer for Make-A-Wish Illinois. Time commitments and volunteer needs vary by community. Bilingual (English/Spanish speaking) volunteers are most needed.

More than 1,500+ specifically trained volunteers generously give their time and energy. Our volunteers come from all walks of the community to become involved in the mission through a variety of capacities.

To get started, you must attend an info session, complete an application, choose an interview time, and submit your paperwork to make sure you are a great fit for Make-A-Wish Illinois!
