A buddy is a volunteer whom is assigned one participant to assist during the pageant.
Buddies are fundamental to the Miss Exceptional L.I. experience. They ensure safety and organization, as well as create lasting relationships with the participants.
Being a buddy is rewarding for many reasons. You are able to escape to another world and join another human being on their journey of self-discovery.
The Buddy duties include:
-Escorting the participant on and off of the stage.
-Ensuring that the participant is in the right place at the right time.
-Dressing/Undressing backstage for costume changes.
-Learning a small, easy dance routine for opening number and performing.
-Attending DRESS REHEARSAL
