The Princess Project Los AngelesLos Angeles, CA 90028


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 Dress Chair (Prom) for our Los Angeles leadership board for a minimum 2-year commitment. The Dress Chair (Prom) can be supported by two people (Co-Chairs) and has the following responsibilities:

  • Responsible for coordinating all dress donations from the general public
  • Responsible for local outreach to dress retailers and companies. Partners with Accessories Chair to ensure no duplication of efforts
  • Partners with Community Chair and Community Liaisons to contact schools to conduct dress drives
  • Manages dress inventories
  • Manages all public dress drive sites
  • Manages dress collection process and receipts for all donations
  • Responsible for working with organizations and Community Liaisons to ensure proper sizes are available for giveaways including group giveaways
  • Responsible for securing and managing storage post-giveaways for leftover dresses, accessories and d?cor in coordination with Accessories Chair and Vice President
  • Responsible for purchasing any dresses required outside of donated items. Traditionally there is a need to purchase sizes at both ends of the spectrum as the volume of donations for dresses of these sizes tends to be small (e.g. size 00-2 as well as sizes 18+)
  • Responsible for partnerships with dry cleaners for dress cleaning, steaming and repair (post storage)
  • Coordinates the dress giveaway team event
  • Hospitality responsibilities (as denoted under Hospitality)

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. Each year, we have a three day planning meeting for the upcoming year in July that is required for all board members.
