The After Prom Committee is made up completely of parent, guardian, and community volunteers. There is nothing magical about being a part of the committee, everyone is welcome and appreciated! Every year, students graduate and their parents move on - After Prom is always looking for parents and guardians willing to jump in and help out!
After Prom has several teams for parents and guardians to choose from so their skills can best be utilized.
The following list describes the different teams into which the traditional After Prom has been divided. Teams are not stand alone and all team members are anticipated to assist with all duties as appropriate. The minimum numbers are identified as individuals that may take the lead in planning and following FCPS procedures.
We would assume multiple volunteers at events and ESPECIALLY the night of After Prom. Team lead would be responsible for reporting at monthly After Prom meetings but is not expected to be sole team resource.
