10 Reasons Why Volunteering at The Princess Shop is Awesome

posted by The Princess Shop    |   October 24, 2016 08:22

The Princess Shop's team is full of hard-working women wanting to make a difference in the Saskatoon community by helping girls in need. There are so many great reasons to become a volunteer at The Princess Shop, but our volunteer team wanted to point out the top 10!  

 

1) Meet so many inspiring Princess Graduates

Meeting the girls who are benefiting from the program and getting to know about them and their dreams and goals gives inspiration to our volunteers for their own lives. 

 

2) Relive your Graduation Day 

Helping out the Princess Graduates on their big day and seeing them all done up with their dresses on, takes our volunteers' back to their own graduation day.

3) Making connections in the community

Helping plan The Glass Slipper BenefitPerfectly Pink BBQ or other events means reaching out to local businesses for donations, which is a great way to network in Saskatoon. 

4) Rewarding work, empowering women

Providing support for Graduation Day and beyond for girls in need and seeing the impact is an excellent feeling!

5) Looking at pretty, sparkly dresses

And helping our beautiful Princess Graduates pick out their special dress is so much fun!

6) Explaining The Princess Shop to members of the community

It's exciting to spread the word about what The Princess Shop offers to young women in the community and how we can help girls beyond their graduation day! Hearing people's positive reactions about our work is very rewarding.  

 

7) Having fun with our volunteer team

Whether it's Sunday morning brunch-ing or spontaneously buying tickets to Saskatoon Fashion and Design Festival Runway, our volunteer team always has fun. 

8) Opportunity to take the reins on your own project as a coordinator 

As a coordinator you are responsible for your program (Next Chapter Program, Fairy Godmother Program, Dress Program, Fundraising, Communications), which is a great experience for young professionals that are joining the work force. This is a unique opportunity that a volunteer role at The Princess Shop provides. 

9) Even our dust is sparkly

Yes, that makes things like sweeping way more fun.

And if that wasn't enough... 

10) Sometimes we get visits from special friends

Sometimes it's from furry friends, like #JadeTheHuskyHeeler

And there are so many more! We are so fortunate to have amazing, committed women on our volunteer team!

If any of the above reasons interest you in volunteering at The Princess Shop, check out our openings and be sure to check back and join our email list for updates! We would love to have you join us! 

The Princess Shop Welcomes New Volunteers for the New Year!

posted by The Princess Shop    |   December 16, 2015 15:47

Like most non-profit organizations, the heartbeat of what we do is fueled by the energy and selflessness of the volunteeers who give their time to us week after week. 2015 has been a big year for The Princess Shop, we've had many successes along the way. But like anything we've also had our challenges, and this year that meant finding the right volunteers to carry forward our mission of being one of Saskatoon's BEST non-profit organizations

Good things come to those who wait, which is why we are so excited to announce the newest Princess Shop volunteers, Morgan McEachern (Volunteer Representative), Chandra Groves (Communications Coordinator), and Kim Julicher (Fundraising Coordinator).

Meet the lovely Morgan McEachern. Morgan, originally from small-town Lanigan, Saskatchewan relocated to Saskatoon for University in 2013. Morgan is one of those people that warms up the room with her smile, and makes those around her feel welcome and comfortable, all great attributes for our Volunteer Representative position!

 

Morgan is as bright as she is warm, as she is currently working towards both a Bachelor of Science Degree in Geology and a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from the Edwards School of Business. Outside of her studies, and volunteer work with The Princess Shop in Saskatoon, she is also employed by the University of Saskatchewan's Science Outreach Program teaching Math and Science concepts in community schools in Saskatoon. She is delighted to be contributing to The Princess Shop community so she can make a difference in the lives of young women in Saskatoon.

 

 Chandra Groves joins The Princess Shop team in the role of Volunteer Communications Coordinator. She's followed the success of The Princess Shop as a great Saskatoon organization, and has seen the impact that it has made in the community over the years. Chandra said when the opportunity presented itself to join, she knew it was the perfect way to play a part in giving back to our community, while utilizing her strengths as a Communications professional. Chandra attained degrees in business and communications from the University of Jamestown in North Dakota in 2009 where she played on a volleyball scholarship. She has spent the last 6 years cultivating as many opportunities for professional growth as possible; from opening a business here in Saskatoon, to documenting her world travels with her own travel blog and website (www.chandragroves.com), to continuing education with a graphic design course in the summer of 2015. Chandra is a self-proclaimed hoarder of experiences. She loves to do photography, write, play music, and she loves pretty much every outdoor adventure. If she's not exploring the land of living skies, you will often find her with a backpack or a snowboard in the Rocky Mountains. 

And last, but certainly not least, we are so excited to be welcoming Kim Julicher our new Fundraising Coordinator. Kim was born and raised in Saskatoon and attended post secondary studies for Food and Hospitality Management in BC. She has since returned home to Saskatoon where she is the Assistant Food and Beverage Manager at the Saskatoon Club. Kim is an extremely hard worker and she loves having the ability to work and volunteer with  groups that offer a positive social outlet for a great purpose. Kim is thrilled to be joining The Princess Shop in Saskatoon as the volunteer Fundraising Coordinator. Outside of work and volunteering, her passions include cultural exploration- both local and international, and her friends and family.

We are still looking to fill two of our Volunteer Roles for 2016. To learn more about this great organization and how you can get involved, contact us today! As always, find us on facebook, twitter, and instagram to stay up to date on the latest and greatest Princess Shop happenings.
