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 Fall 2018 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.

Please contact Stephanie Kowalski, at to receive your Internship Application.

1. Complete the College Internship Volunteer Application PLUS provide three letters of reference (from non-family members), resume and cover letter. Reference forms are attached with the application.

2. Send completed application along with references, resume and cover letter to the attention of Lisa Johnson, via fax, email or hard copy through postal office.
