Dream Team Descriptions

Buddies/Escorts Team
This is one of the most important jobs at the prom and by far our biggest needs! As a buddy/escort, you are responsible for being the host for one of our special guests. You’ll show them around, take them to get food, take pictures with them, and of course, dance! It’s the job of the buddy/escort to ensure that no one is left stranded! We need mature (must be at least 16 or with a parent or adult), patient, loving people to serve as escorts.

Volunteer and Guest Registration Team
You’ll greet our volunteers and guests as they arrive, help them get checked in and direct them to where they need to be. This team also has the honor of passing out gifts to our guests at the end of the night!

Parking Team
This team will oversee the traffic flow of guests and volunteers as they arrive and direct them to appropriate drop-off and parking areas.

Medical Team
We’re looking for nurses, doctors, medical students, or anyone else in the medical field that would be willing to donate their time for our guests. You would be available if one of our guests has a medical need.

Coat Check Team
This team is responsible for taking the coats for all of our volunteers and guests and keeping them organized by number. At the end of the night, you’ll assist in passing them back out as everyone leaves.

Red Carpet and Crowning Team
Your role is to provide buddies with crowns and tiaras to place on the guests after registration and before they walk the red carpet. Buddies assigned to each guest will lead them down the red carpet, and you will be there to help cheer on and make them feel like kings and queens as they stop and pose for pictures!

Security Team
Your role is to support on-site law enforcement personnel by ensuring a safe and secure environment for guests and volunteers. Each member of this team will be positioned at various entrances and exits throughout the facility and ensure that anyone entering or exiting is permitted to do so.

Hair and Makeup Team
One of the things our guests look forward to the most is getting pampered by our hair and make-up team! We are looking for people who have the skills to help make our guests look their best by styling hair and applying make-up to our prom guests.

Photography Team
Be a part of the team that gives our guests a permanent memory of the evening. This team will be everywhere capturing special moments happening all over the prom!

Parents/Caregivers Room Host Team
This room will be specifically designated for the parents/caregivers of the guests. We will create a warm and comfortable area for them to relax, be pampered and served. We need massage therapists to volunteer a couple of hours, as well as volunteers who would like to be food servers.

Karaoke Room Team
Your role is to encourage our special guests who participate in singing karaoke and maintain a fun atmosphere for our 2 karaoke rooms. Basically, make the guests feel like they just performed on-stage at the concert of their life!

Greeting and Flowers Team
This team will welcome guests with a friendly smile and be door holders as everyone arrives. A portion of this team will also help with providing corsages and boutonnieres for all of our special guests.

Shoe Shine Team
Your role is to welcome each male guest to participate in getting a shoe shine. It’s all about telling them how sharp they look, making them feel important and like they’re getting the full VIP treatment!

Food Service Team
Most of the food and drink service is provided and managed by the hotel this year, but this team will be responsible for helping make sure tables are kept clear, guests have what they need and serving with the food line as needed.

Tear Down Team
When the party is over, it’s your time to shine! You’ll help get everything cleaned up and back in order. With all hands on deck, we’ll be finished in no time.
