We are a nonprofit organization that hosts events and pageants for kids/adults with special needs. There are many different volunteer positions available for our upcoming event. Including helping at our storage area with loading and unloading a small Uhaul with all the decorations and awards, supplies, etc. for the event, setting up and taking down the event, working behind the scenes, being a participant valets, overseeing concession and ticket tables, greeting and directing, assisting with food/bev for all the attendees, etc.

It takes a village to plan, organize and put on an event of this magnitude.

Mission Statement

To provide opportunities for individuals with significant intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to learn life skills and build pride in a nurturing environment.

Description

Butterfly Dreams is a nonprofit organization which will provide an opportunity for girls, women, boys and men with significant intellectual disabilities/developmental delays to participate in both an annual pageant and numerous yearly activities promoting the event. Our goal is to give every participant their moment to stand in the spotlight, showcase their abilities and not be defined by their disabilities. Every participant will receive an accolade; a medal of participation for the boys/men, and a trophy and tiara for the girls/women. In short, each participant will be provided that "Miss or Mr. America" moment.

Our vision also involves support from the community. A young man or woman, (known as Pageant Pals) will be assigned for each participant, to escort them through the event. These young ladies and gentlemen will preferably be working towards a career in Special Education, Speech Pathology or related field and come from the local colleges. This provides the students with real world experience, along with the promotion of inclusion and acceptance. Our hope is that our participants and pals will develop a friendship that extends beyond the borders of this day.

Butterfly Dreams is a journey of learning life skills and developing pride in self for all its participants and volunteers.
