Background Checks

Due to the nature of our work, select volunteer positions must successfully complete a criminal background check every 3 years.  Make-A-Wish does not employ or utilize as a volunteer 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 process.
