Mike, Volunteer

“This experience reaffirmed something that I knew intellectually, but somehow along the way had  forgotten to really appreciate. Whether one is going through an illness or some other personal challenges, doing something to help another human being puts your problems into perspective and reminds you that there is always hope.” 

Corey, Program Services Intern

"My internship experience with Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic has been nothing short of magical...Writing about children with life-threatening medical conditions can tear at your heart strings, but the hope, strength and joy that Make-A-Wish volunteers and staff provide is so powerful that I know every minute I spent at Make-A-Wish was worth it...I learned so much during my internship that I know will stay with me for the rest of my writing career. I couldn't have wished for a better way to spend my summer." Read more and see photos.

Aigerim, Program Services Intern

"My internship experience at Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic was absolutely amazing...I got to witness and assist with almost every single step necessary in granting a wish. It is absolutely magical to see an idea grow from three simple phrases (I wish to be, I wish to go, and I wish to have) into a marvelous and absolutely original wish! It was a great privilege working for Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic. I loved every aspect of my internship! Thank you!
