Volunteer Team Descriptions
RED CARPET TEAM
The Red Carpet team is open to all ages and is the one team that does not require a background check. At the beginning of the night, this team will act as the “paparazzi,” welcoming guests and making them feel like kings and queens as they arrive for the Night to Shine. This is the perfect place for whole families to serve together. For the safety of our Honored Guests, Buddies, and Volunteers, our volunteers on the Red Carpet will not enter into the dance once the Red Carpet is shut down unless a volunteer has been approved to do so. Apply for the Red Carpet Team.
