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. You will also have the option to deliver school talks to primary and secondary school students.

We would ask our volunteers to commit to the below each year:

  • Participate in a minimum of 3 wish visits (if available in your area)
  • Participate in our annual Wish Day
  • Attend cheque presentations or organise one fundraising event
  • Link us with your place of work and local schools if appropriate
  • School visits (if available during the day)

Becoming a volunteer with Make-A-Wish is a very worthwhile and rewarding experience. We are currently recruiting Community Volunteers in the following counties:

Carlow, Kerry, Kilkenny, Kildare, Leitrim, Louth, Mayo, Monaghan, Offaly, Tipperary, Westmeath and Wexford


To become a community volunteer, you will need to complete an application form which will be emailed to you. Once your application is processed you will be required to complete a phone interview, Garda vetting and formal training. Make-A-Wish Ireland reserve the right to reject volunteer applications at any stage during this process.
