November the Month of Thankful
November is a month of thankfulness and giving back. With that theme, we thought how appropriate to discuss the many ways you can volunteer with the Green Prom and our prestigious Presidential awards.
There are many ways people can volunteer with the Green Prom. High school and college girls have donated their time by being on our advisory board. The advisory board members help organize their area events. They recruit models and venders for our fashion shows and boutiques. They help bring in services and volunteers that help our events run smooth and make them unique and fun for those that attend. We also have interns that help with different aspects of our organization. We have volunteers that help mend our dresses and prepare them for their next turn at prom. We have interns that run our blog and social media. We have girls that run our fundraising events and help us find new and exciting ways to raise funds to help keep our dresses free. There is also the all time favorite way to volunteer with the GPM and that is as a model. Our models are area volunteers who come to our fashion shows and photoshoots. Many adults have volunteered with the GPM by donating their talent of sewing, photography, makeup and hair.
Since there are so many different ways to volunteer then there are so many different ways to earn the Presidential award. First there are actually four different levels to the presidential award. They all go by age and number of hours volunteered. There is the silver presidential award, Bronze Presidential Award, Gold Presidential Award and the most prestigious Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award. The Gold Prom has awarded two people in our organization Presidential awards both of which have achieved the Gold Presidential award. We hope to award many more in the future.
