We need the help of over 200 volunteers to create this amazing night for our honored guests. 

Can you help?

There's something for nearly everyone to do. From younger kiddos helping to celebrate our guests as they walk the red carpet, to teen and adult buddies, clean up crew, and so much more.

Not available on the night of the event? No problem! There is plenty of work to do in the days leading up to Night to Shine.

We cannot accept walk-in volunteers for this event, so please sign up using the link below.

Volunteer Descriptions

  • Buddy Team - A Buddy is one of the best jobs at Night to Shine.  They get to spend the entire night with an honored guest. This means you get to see them walk down the red carpet, pose for pictures, visit Karaoke or take a ride in a Limo, dance the night away, and of course crown them King or Queen of the prom at the end of the night. A Buddy’s main job is to make sure the guest is enjoying their evening and is never left out of the fun! There will be a training session required for all volunteers before the event, so you will be well prepared for your role.  Our Buddies do not need to have any experience working with people in the special needs community.  However, if you do have experience please let us know when you register. (ages 14+)

  • Shoe Shine Team - Give shoeshine to any guests that are brought to your station. (ages 14+)

  • Bathroom Attendant - You will assist with the door and hand washing. If additional assistance is needed, you will call the respite room for the guest’s caregiver. (ages 18+)

  • Dance Floor Team - Invite guests to the dance floor and try to include as many guests as possible. (ages 14+) 

  • Parking Team - Direct guests and parents/caretakers to the main lobby entrance. Provide assistance when necessary. (ages 18+)

  • Security/Safety Team - Monitor the building for safety. All doors should remain closed and everyone attending should be wearing a lanyard. (ages 18+)

  • Decoration and Assembly Team - There are so many wonderful opportunities to assemble decor, gift bags, and more during the week of February 6th. If you would prefer to help before the event, please consider this opportunity (All ages! Under 14 with a parent.)

  • Day of Setup Team - This group will help to set up any remaining items during the day on February 10th. (ages 14+)
