Become a Wish Granter

Mentor Program

Currently under development is our new mentor program. An older wish alum will have the ability to mentor a younger wish child, showing them the ropes and how to get the most out of their wish experience. Alumni who have gone through the program are paired with wish kids who have just become eligible for their wish to answer any questions they may have or just have a buddy to talk to. The bond formed through this mentorship program would be invaluable for a wish kid and their families, adding further clarity and excitement to the wish journey.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Brittany at
