Young Professionals


It is our mission to have an active role in ensuring that every medically eligible child in Orange County and the Inland Empire receives a wish.

The Make-A-Wish® Orange County and the Inland Empire Young Professionals are a diverse group of young leaders under the age of 40 who are dedicated to supporting the mission of Make-A-Wish. Joining the Young Professionals group is a fun, rewarding, and puts you in a position to give back directly instead of watching from the sidelines.

The Young Professionals help promote Make-A-Wish by participating in and hosting events geared toward young professionals in order to increase awareness, encourage volunteerism and raise funds for the organization.

To become a Make-A-Wish Young Professional, simply email Kara at to get connected! We hope to see you at the next event!

Do You Like To Host Events?

Our goal is to have monthly activities where we can get together, get to know each other and come together as a united front to raise awareness and funds for Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire. The monthly activities happen by the Young Professionals taking turns hosting the different months. You can own a month by yourself, or buddy up with a friend and come up with something for everyone to join in together.
