Careers

Community Volunteer

As a community volunteer you will be involved in visiting wish children to find out their one true wish, attending events on behalf of Make-A-Wish, raising awareness of Make-A-Wish in your area and assisting with our national fundraising day - Wish Day 29th March 2019. You will also have the option to deliver school talks to primary and secondary school students. To be a community volunteer, you must be committed to the role and the mission of Make-A-Wish. We ask that you complete a minimum of 3 wish visits a year and commit to holding one fundraiser or volunteer on Wish Day. It is a very varied and fulfilling role.

School Visits Representative

Schools play a very important part in helping Make-A-Wish grant wishes. School visits not only spread the magic of Make-A-Wish, but also educate students on how they can help support us. Children who are living with a life-threatening medical condition spend most of their time in hospitals undergoing painful treatments instead of attending school. 

Young people really identify with what it must be like for another child to be sick and restricted in what they can do. The School Visit Representative volunteer role involves visiting Primary and Secondary schools around Ireland and informing students on the work that Make-A-Wish do and how they can help. In some cases, we offer a cheque presentation to schools that have raised money, to thank students personally for their hard work.

Time Commitment

Throughout the school year

Fundraising Volunteers

Our fundraising volunteers donate their time and skills to support us in organising events in their local communities and get involved with the team in initiatives all over the country.

We rely on fundraising volunteers to continue to grant a wish to EVERY eligible child in Ireland. Do you have a fundraising idea? Are you doing a marathon? Coffee morning or fashion show?

You will find some inspiring fundraising ideas HERE

Make-A-Wish reserves the right to refuse an application to fundraise or volunteer for the charity.
