Community Involvement

Year after year at The Princess Project, we witness first-hand how just one person influences hundreds of lives. Volunteers are integral to our success. Through the selfless support of more than 600 individuals over the past 10 years, The Princess Project has made prom a reality for more than 20,000 teens who could not otherwise afford to attend.

The Princess Project offers volunteers of all ages and locations several different opportunities to participate. We hope we have a chance to work with you on one of the following events soon!

Participate in a Dress Giveaway: Create (or re-live!) prom memories by volunteering for The Princess Project Dress Giveaway. Decorate the showroom, help teens choose the best dresses, or help us shut down shop after another rewarding, successful year.

High school involvement: If you’re in high school and would like to participate in The Princess Project as a volunteer, we welcome your support! Host a dress drive in your school or gather a group of friends to decorate for the Dress Giveaway events. For more information and specifics on how you can help make prom a reality for your peers, please contact us at

Get involved year-round: Are you interested in an exciting and unique leadership opportunity? We are always looking to welcome dedicated individuals onto our amazing team of talented women that make The Princess Project possible. Please email us at to learn more.
