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

Volunteering is a great way to help. We invite you to share the power of a wish® whether you can give a few hours each month or a few days each year. Volunteers assist in various areas of Make-A-Wish Alabama 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 for Wish Granting Volunteers...

    • Bilingual: Spanish-English in the Birmingham and Montgomery metro areas
    • Wish Granters work directly with children to discover their heartfelt wishes and help bring their wishes to fruition. Wish Granters must be 21 years of age, commit to fulfilling 2-3 wishes per year and attend a two and a half hour Wish Granter Training.

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