Spring is a special time of year when our community celebrates the achievements of young men and women as we donate new and gently worn dresses, suits, ties, shoes and more to those who may not be able to afford such items for graduation or prom. Through this program youth celebrate this important academic milestone and build self-confidence.
Registered participants must be in Grade 8 or High School.
Participants will receive:
- A 45-minute one-on-one fashion consultation with our YWCA team
- The opportunity to select a dress or suit from dozens of colours and styles
- The knowledge that our community values their achievements….and it’s all for free!
