About

Work in teams of two to help make wishes come true. This involves interviewing the child and family to determine the wish, working with staff to help fulfill the wish, helping the child stay engaged while waiting for the wish to happen and throwing a wish party when the wish is granted. Time commitment varies, depending on the type of wish and number of wishes you are involved with. The wish interview and granting almost always take place in the evening or on a weekend. We are looking for volunteers who can make a long-term commitment (minimum of two years and work on at least 3 wishes per year).

Volunteers are needed in the following areas: Baltimore, Baltimore City, Prince George's, Prince William, Loudoun, Harford, Cecil and Washington counties
