Thank you for your interest in volunteering at a No Worries Now Prom for teens with life-threatening illnesses! This form is specifically for those who want to volunteer in-person at a NWN Prom event. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer with No Worries Now throughout the year–not just on prom night! See how else you can get involved now!
All potential volunteers for NWN Proms must complete this application (even if you have volunteered at a NWN Prom in the past) so that we can place you in the right volunteer position. Volunteering at a NWN Prom is a fun and deeply fulfilling experience. We are looking for people with a variety of skills — from extroverts who will be the first on the dance floor to photographers who prefer experiencing the event through a lens. Choose from the list of volunteer positions below, or create your own on-site volunteer project. Volunteers are typically 16-30, but we do not consider age as a selection criterion.
Due to the high demand for prom volunteer positions, we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate all volunteer applicants. We will not know how many spots we have for volunteers until we receive all patient RSVPs approximately four weeks before prom. We will therefore notify you of whether you have been selected to volunteer at the prom two to three weeks before the event. We will also assign you a specific volunteer role in advance based on the preferences you indicate.
If you are selected to volunteer, you will not be able to bring a guest unless he or she has also filled out an application and been selected as a volunteer.
Thank you for generously offering your time!
The form below is for recommenders of Pair Program volunteer applicants. Recommenders should be an adult who knows the applicant well and can objectively assess his or her character and maturity.
