Volunteer duties, especially Personal Shoppers, can vary depending on the number of high school students have signed up. It is important for volunteers to be flexible, patient and sometimes creative when working with high school students. There will always be an on-site manager to assist with any challenging situations. 


We are happy to have volunteers of any age. We ask that volunteers 14 and under volunteer with an adult. 


Ruby Room volunteers are responsible for protecting the privacy of Ruby Room clients. Privacy includes but not limited to; securing students a private dressing room so they can try on dresses comfortably, information about students is not to be given to anyone, including new agencies without specific written consent from the student and The Ruby Room, no photos are to be taken of the students without a signed release from their guardian. 

Dress Code: 

The Ruby Room strives to create a boutique atmosphere; therefore Boutique Volunteers are to dress professionally in all black with a splash of color. Please do not wear yoga pants or casual hoodies.  Part of the experience for the Ruby Room clients is to be inspired and feel a level of professionalism during their boutique visit, this often starts with how we present ourselves. Dress in what makes you feel polished and pretty.
Personal Belongings: Volunteers are responsible at all times for their own personal belongings. We encourage you NOT to bring handbags or other personal items to the boutique. We do not have a secure cabinet to lock up personal items. The Ruby Room is not responsible for lost or stolen items. 


Public parking is available in adjacent lots. There is a 2 hour limit in the parking lot under the boutique. Parking is available at Bellevue Square Mall or Lincoln Square if you plan to be in the boutique for longer than 2 hours. Please be sure to obey the parking signs.


The volunteer relationship may be terminated in the case of non-compliance with the volunteer policy; or for behavior that is angry, threatening, or disrespectful to other volunteers, staff or students.
