Become a Volunteer

Like most Americans, you’ve probably seen the Miss America competition televised live annually from Atlantic City, NJ. What you probably haven’t seen is what’s going on behind the scenes of the show, thanks to hundreds of thousands of volunteers throughout the country. The nationally televised Miss America competition is just one very small part of a nationwide, community service network that operates 12 months a year in every state and more than a thousand cities and towns across the country. On an annual basis, Miss America state and local titleholders, along with the Organization’s network of volunteers, participate in more than 12,000 community service projects, providing in excess of 500,000 service hours to worthy causes.
