“Inclusion at its finest!!!! It was an honor to be a part of today!! I loved every minute! As someone who works with families at the very beginning of their journey, I cannot express my appreciation and awe that such an event exists. The support, love, and mutual respect is what we dream and hope that families will encounter as they proceed on their journey through the years. Thank you for letting me be a small part of this amazing event!!!"
- Colleen Bonde, Miss Amazing Committee Member and Evaluator
FULL DAY "Buddy" VOLUNTEER
Full day volunteers play an integral role in the event's success. All full day volunteers are assigned to the "Buddy" position. As a Miss Amazing buddy, you'll be paired up with a participant for the entire day and receive the coveted “Buddy” t-shirt! You will be responsible for taking the participant to all activities throughout the day and night. In being her official Miss Amazing guide and support system, you could form a rewarding relationship that could last for years to come. Families are relying on you to be responsible all day for the participant, but they will be available if necessary.
Helping hand VOLUNTEER
If you are able to dedicate your time for part of the event, we will be counting on you for behind-the-scenes work and activity preparations. As a helping hand volunteer, you will have the opportunity to gain a wider view of what Miss Amazing is accomplishing and contribute to the overall experience by helping with necessary tasks. If you would like to volunteer your time for the entire day, please indicate this in the application and we will will assign you to various positions throughout the day.
Calling all helpful and supportive gentlemen! The objective of the Right-Hand Man program is to give boys and men with and without disabilities the opportunity to volunteer at Miss Amazing. Right-Hand Men are responsible for accompanying the participants as they present themselves in their evening wear on stage during the Final Show. To get to know the participant, you will have dinner with her and her buddy before the Final Show.
