Become a Volunteer

Volunteers assist in various areas of Make-A-Wish Idaho 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.

Currently, our highest need is for Wish Granting Volunteers throughout the state, especially in East and North Idaho. We are also seeking bilingual Spanish-English Wish Granters. There are also opportunities to serve as an office volunteer, marketing/communications and website support. Thank you for considering giving your time to make wishes come true!

Ready to get started? 

Here is the process to become a wish granting volunteer:


    1. Complete the Volunteer Application.

    Submit your application to the Volunteer Manager by email -, by mail - 310 W. Idaho St. Boise, Idaho 83702 or by Fax - 208-342-8878

     2. Background check  

     3. Attend 2.5 hour online training

    Wish granting volunteers hold a very important role, and are the eyes and ears of our organization in the homes of wish families. We could not do what we do without them! Volunteers meet with the wish family, interview the wish child and help them discover their one true wish! Once the child’s wish is discovered, volunteers will keep the family engaged by touching base with them monthly and planning small gifts and parties until their wish is granted. Volunteers commit at least 1 year to volunteering, as each of our nearly 100 wishes take anywhere from 6 months to a year to grant.
