YWOW Application

Young Wishmakers of Wisconsin Application

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Young Wishmakers of Wisconsin supporting Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. The group is designed to give each member a diverse and rewarding experience while working towards fulfilling the Make-A-Wish mission of granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER?
In order to provide wish children and their families with the best experience possible, we require all potential members to go through an application process before becoming an active Make-A-Wish volunteer and member.

Once your application and conflict of interest are received, it takes about 2 weeks to process and approve. After your application is processed, you will be contacted with detailed instructions as it relates to the next steps based on the opportunities available.
WHY DO I NEED A BACKGROUND CHECK?
Due to the nature of Make-A-Wish, volunteer positions must successfully complete a criminal background check. Make-A-Wish does not employ or utilize any individual who has been convicted of a crime that (a) victimizes children, (b) is sexual in nature or (c) involves violence, fraud or significant theft. Please contact us with any questions related to past convictions and/or our background check screening process.
WHO DO I CONTACT WITH QUESTIONS?
Corporate Relations & Events Manager, Andrea Hug, (414) 763-0472 or ahug@wisconsin.wish.org
