The Wellesley Cotillion is an elegant evening for high school juniors and seniors that reside in Wellesley and/or attend Wellesley High School. In keeping with the 75+ year Cotillion tradition, students are asked to dress for the occasion, go through a traditional receiving line, greet parent chaperones, and introduce their dates.
We invite interested Parents & Guardians, through this Sign-Up page, to help us prepare for this spectacular event and to support our 800 young adults as they arrive en masse at one of our two transportation sites: Wellesley High School or the Yawkey Club of Roxbury. Our guests will check-in, queue up for the luxury bus ride into Boston University, drop their coats and personal items at Coat Check, enjoy themselves at the event, and re-board buses for the return trip home. We will need many, many, capable hands for this endeavor. A sense of humor, a willingness for adventure, and a positive attitude are a must. Past years' volunteer efforts were simply amazing. This event is one of the best times you'll ever spend in support of our sons and daughters. To see the sheer joy on their faces during this magical evening and to spend time with other mothers, fathers, and caring adult mentors is both rewarding and uplifting. Please consider volunteering in one or more of the various ways below. We encourage you to volunteer with a friend or spouse so please consider recruiting someone (or two!) to join you.
We will be hosting a very important meeting for Cotillion Parent Volunteers on Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019 at 7pm in the Wellesley High Cafeteria. Please plan to attend as this will be the best way to understand what your job entails and how it critically dovetails with the work of other volunteers. We’ll also be able to answer any questions you may have.
This planning meeting is for ALL adults volunteering on the evening of Cotillion: WHS Registration, Yawkey Club Organizers, Security Chaperones, Facilitators at WHS, Bus Chaperones, Cotillion (Metcalf Hall) Chaperones, Coat Check Volunteers, Photographers, and our Doctors & Nurses.

BY selecting a quantity of "2" slots, you can sign up yourself & a spouse or yourself & a friend at the same time. When signing up 2 people at once, please enter both names, both emails & both cell phone #'s in the comment box.
