Volunteering with Night To Shine is truly a special opportunity that you don’t want to miss. Below are some details that will get you started on your way to becoming an amazing Night To Shine volunteer.
There are 20 different volunteer teams for this year’s Night To Shine.
Every volunteer must complete a mandatory background check.
Every volunteer must attend at least one mandatory Night To Shine training. (January 22 or 27)
Volunteers need to be at least 14yrs+
Children under 18yrs of age need to have their parents sign a release form.
Set up and participate in any additional activities, including karaoke, with the guests. Encourage them and maintain a fun atmosphere.
Help guests find the restroom, and offer assistance in the restroom if needed. If a guest requires assistance with more than getting in and out of a stall or hand washing, it is appropriate to contact their parent or caregiver for assistance.
Accompany and assist assigned guest throughout the evening, providing companionship and any assistance they may need during the event. Sit with their guest during dinner and engage with them in conversation. We recommend volunteer buddies be at least 16 years old.
Greet guests, take their coats, label them and hang them. As guests leave, ask for their names and retrieve their coats. The coat check area can also serve as a lost and found at the end of the evening.
Monitor the dance floor and the perimeter to make sure there are no “wallflowers.” Invite them to dance and engage with them.
Come during the week to help decorate the space and create a magical environment for our special guest.
Constantly “float” around the main event space, kitchen, restrooms and outdoors to assist anywhere an extra hand is needed.
Serve food to guests in main event space and Respite Room (for parents, caretakers or family members). Be knowledgeable about the items and assist guests in finding what they would like (especially if they have dietary restrictions or allergies) and refill food warmers, drinks and snacks.
Manage gifts and help each guest collect their favors to take home.
Warmly greet guests, sign them in, give them their name tag or lanyard, and answer any questions they may have.
Arrive at the designated time and assist set-up team with the salon area. Welcome each guest to a salon station for hair and makeup or to a seat for a shoe shine. Chat with them while you pamper them and make them feel special.
Assist uniformed professional EMT personnel at the event by providing basic first aid and care for any medical needs or emergencies.
Maintain a parking pattern and direct traffic for easy vehicle entry and exit. Maintain open fire and emergency lanes.
Assist and announce guests as they make their way down the red carpet, manage flow and traffic and cheer them on to make them feel welcomed.
Love on the parents/caretakers by serving food, spending time getting to know them and being available to pray with them
Support on-site uniformed Law Enforcement personnel by ensuring a safe and secure environment for guests and volunteers. Walk around and monitor the main event space and outdoor areas, making sure exits are not blocked and all areas remain wheelchair accessible.
Spend time with guests who may have become over-stimulated on the dance floor or in other areas of the prom. Interact with them by participating in sensory activities, singing or listening to calming music or simply providing them with some quiet time.
Arrive at the designated time and execute event set-up, connect with DJ, audio/visual, activity and parking teams to ensure they have everything they need and the best possible event layout is in place.
