You can help make the wishes of children in our community come true when you become a Make-A-Wish® volunteer. Our mission is possible only with the dedication of our volunteers.

Volunteers assist in various areas of Make-A-Wish® alongside staff members and other volunteers. In return for their diligent efforts and dedication, volunteers receive valuable training, hands-on experience and the gratification of making a difference in the life of a child. 


Becoming A Volunteer

Do you have a few hours each week? Maybe a few days each week? Then you can help bring the rejuvenation of wish experiences to wish kids with life-threatening medical conditions. Join a network of more than 25,000 caring people nationwide who make it possible for Make-A-Wish® kids to live their one true wish.


Types of Volunteers

Whether you have a little or a lot of time to give, we can use your help! There are many types of volunteer roles from working directly with wish children to helping set up events.



Our internship program is designed to give individuals a diverse and rewarding experience while working towards fulfilling our mission. Although all internships are unpaid, students interested in a career in the non-profit sector will find a wealth of experience by working with the Make-A-Wish San Diego office.
