The Princess Project Los Angeles is in its first year as a Princess Project non-profit location and we are recruiting for our Leadership Board. We are actively seeking a Site and Staging Chair for our Los Angeles leadership board for a minimum 2-year commitment. The Site and Staging Chair can be supported by two people (Co-Chairs) and has the following responsibilities:

  • Works with Community Liaisons to secure enough dress giveaway physical sites to support our communities’ needs
  • Develops, organizes, and documents all aspects of each physical site for each year
  • Creates comprehensive schedule for site(s) from first day to move out
  • Secures giveaway spaces
  • Works with Community Liaisons to arrange utilities and services for space (i.e. water, power, garbage collection)
  • Serves as escalation point for site and site-related issues
  • Trains community liaisons on how to maintain a clean, orderly, and safe site space
  • Hires and manages security staff during giveaways

  • Coordinates outreach to vendors for donations of staging and decoration materials (e.g. tables, chairs, linens, fabrics, decorations, flowers, balloons, dressing room d├ęcor, etc.)
  • Hospitality responsibilities (as denoted under Hospitality)
  • Manage site and staging volunteers

The time committment for this role during these formative years varies per month but averages 10-15 hours a month except during prom season (March-May) where an additional one to three weekends of time may be needed at various dress giveaway events.
