On Saturday, November 16th, 2013 Make-A-Wish® of Central and Northern Florida will be hosting a Wish Granting Training Session in Pensacola. The training class will be from 9:00am-2:00pm. Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We currently have children in Pensacola and surrounding cities that are waiting to have their wishes granted. This training session will teach the volunteers how to determine the child’s one true wish, different wish granting techniques, policies & guidelines and how to grant the actual wish. Wish Granters team up in pairs and work directly with the children and their families to make these wishes come true. These specially trained volunteers make the wish an unforgettable experience through creativity and imagination. Wish Granters volunteer their time around their own schedule and traditionally requires one hour per week. Ideal wish granters have great communication, commitment and are very patient. You must be 21 or older to participate.
​To register for the class, R.S.V.P for the location or other volunteer opportunities, please contact Stephanie Smith at 407.622.4673 x201 or e-mail
