VOLUNTEERS

1. What is the role of a student host?

Our hosts are paired with a special needs guest and stay by their side for an evening of food, limo rides, pictures and dancing. Your sole responsibility is to serve the guest and make them feel safe, honored, accepted and celebrated. You will be surrounded by lots of support, energy and fun. Many of our hosts have said they had more fun at this prom than their own and can’t wait until it comes around again the next year.

2. What qualifications do I need to have?

You don’t need to have any specific qualifications—just a willingness to be fully engaged with the guests and your team, follow through with responsibilities and meetings and have a lot of fun!

3. What are your biggest needs?

It costs approximately $100 per guest to create A Night to Remember. To donate, click here or go to the donate page on this website.  Everything is free to our guests, so the more we can get donated, the better the event.  We are in need of limos and gift cards to the following stores: Home Depot, Lowe's, Costco, Michaels, Amazon, Ikea, Smart and Final, and WinCo.

EVENT: May 19th, 2017. Times vary; however, most volunteer teams will need to arrive at 5PM and will be released by 10:30PM. Full details will be provided at training.
