Become An Intern

Application Process

Interning is a great way to help. We invite you to share the power of a wish® We are now accepting applications for Summer / Fall 2015 Internships. Thank You!

Our internship program is geared toward providing extensive individual and team work that will directly impact the hundreds of children and their families that we serve. The greatest benefit to a student intern is the opportunity to partner with Make-A-Wish to help hundreds of wishes come true all year long.

While we have no paid intern positions, we certainly have opportunities available for you to help the very special children we serve. Our internship opportunities are based in our offices in Buffalo and Rochester.
