Are you ready to bring joy to Northern Alberta wish kids? Volunteering with the Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta will likely become one of the most rewarding experiences in your life and your efforts will be rewarded, not with dollars and cents, but with something incredibly more valuable - smiles, hugs, laughter and the remarkable high that comes from having made a tangible difference in the life of a child.
Whether you would like to assist in the wish granting process, participate in fun community events, host an event to benefit Make-A-Wish, or promote special programs, we have volunteer opportunities just for you!

It is very important to us that you have a rewarding volunteer experience. Our volunteers are a big part of bringing the magical touches to our wishes and events. Creativity and enthusiasm are never in short supply with our volunteers. Tiaras and wish wands are definitely a volunteer staple.

Who is Eligible?

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, including young professionals, corporate managers and executives, stay-at-home moms (or dads!), retirees and college students. To assist with wishes, you must be at least 18 years old and share our passion for bringing joy to the lives of children. Those younger than 18 that want to help should check out our Kids For Wish Kids program. To become a volunteer, you will be required to complete an online volunteer application and undergo a personal interview along with a criminal background check and for some roles, attend a training session.
