Volunteer 

Join a caring community of volunteers who transform lives. Together, we can make countless wishes come true.  

Your time and unique talents are critical to bringing strength and hope to wish kids when they need it the most. In fact, our volunteers are at the heart of every wish experience. 

Make-A-Wish volunteers consider their work impactful and meaningful. And, their efforts are rewarded—not in dollars or cents, but in the incredible difference they make in the lives of our wish kids. Volunteers even have the freedom to choose when and how they would like to help transform lives in our community. 

We are currently only accepting applications from bilingual Spanish-speaking volunteers. Despite the limitations from the pandemic, we’re still granting life-changing wishes and meeting with wish families virtually. We have many Spanish-speaking families waiting to begin the wish process and need help to meet with them. If you are fluent in English and Spanish and are interested in volunteering for our chapter, please email Alex Rivera at [email protected] for more information.

As an organization Make-A-Wish Greater LA is very fortunate to be in the position where we have hundreds of trained and passionate volunteers helping us serve our mission. After evaluating our chapter's current needs, and in the best interest of our new volunteers’ experience, we have decided to place a hold on general volunteer recruitment and on-boarding and to focus our recruiting efforts on filling the gap within our Spanish-speaking community. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter or visit our Ways to Help page to check out other ways you can support local wish kids.
