give your time

Volunteers are integral to The Princess Project’s success in making prom a reality for disadvantaged teenagers. Year after year, we witness first-hand how one person can influence hundreds of lives. In conjunction with The Princess Project, 600+ volunteers in the past 10 years have enriched prom experiences for more than 20,000 teens.

Create (or re-live!) prom memories by volunteering at The Princess Project Dress Giveaways. We hope we have a chance to work with you at one of the following events!

Volunteer Frequently Asked Questions

Who can volunteer at PPSV? We invite all women, ages 18 and older and out of high school to volunteer as a personal shopper during the actual give away. If you’re in high school and would like to participate in The Princess Project as a volunteer, we welcome your support during our set-up or tear-down times, as well as by Hosting a dress drive at your school!

How do I volunteer? Sign up to help with set-up, tear-down and giveaway days!

As a volunteer, what will my responsibility be? As a PPSV volunteer, you will be expected to be a Jill of All Trades! You may be responsible for serving as a personal shopper, accessories associate, dress collection spiffer-upper, or check-out helper. There’s lots to do, and the most important thing you can be is flexible and helpful!

You will be asked to carefully read and sign our volunteer waiver each day you volunteer.

Will I work directly with the teens who are shopping? All fairy godmother/personal shopper volunteers will have an opportunity to interact with our guests.

What do I wear? Most importantly…comfortable shoes and casual attire, as you will be on the move! You will be given a PPSV apron to wear. Please lock your purse and other personal items in your car trunk, as we do not have storage.

Is there anything else I should know as a volunteer? We ask that you remember that this event is ALL ABOUT the teens we serve! Smile, be polite, be encouraging, and be supportive. It is not our role to judge on any level - dress color, style, fit - but you may suggest!
