Become a Volunteer

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

We rely on more than 350 volunteers throughout Nebraska to help grant the wishes of children battling critical illnesses. Every volunteer plays a vital role in helping us achieve our mission.

Our volunteer application process is:
  • Complete our online Volunteer Application . If you do not have access to a computer, please call Courtney Cleveringa at 402.333.8999 ext. 2807, and she will help input your information.
  • Once we have received your application, we will contact you within 3-5 business days regarding the next steps.  
  • Attend a volunteer orientation. New Volunteer Orientation is required to become a volunteer for Make-A-Wish Nebraska. At the orientation you will learn the history, mission, and values of Make-A-Wish along with all the different ways you can volunteer with our organization. For more information on orientation date & times, click here.
  • Some volunteer positions require the volunteer to complete a national background check. The background check is completed online, and we ask the volunteer to cover the initial cost. Visit the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.  
  • After your background check is completed, we will contact you after you have been approved and notify you of the required training needed based on your interests.  
  • If you are interested in becoming a Wish Granter, please attend our New Volunteer Orientation first to learn about next steps. You must be 21 years or older to qualify for that role.
