Say Yes to the Prom is a Discovery Communications corporate staple hosted by LifeWorks & Inclusion and TLC. The annual initiative kicks off after the new year with a national prom dress donation drive for high school girls and ends with a red carpet event in partnership with local high schools. SYTTP is a program that focuses on identifying and celebrating girls in need to help build courage, confidence and improve self-image.
Selected from area high schools, local girls are invited for a day of shopping and head-to-toe pampering to get them ready for a prom night they will never forget. Each girl is paired with a Discovery employee who serves as a prom-consultant, personal shopper and style assistant throughout the day, and who ultimately will become a mentor beyond the event. The girls have their choice of the most stylish prom looks and accessories and everything they pick out, they take home.
Discovery transforms conference rooms into hair and makeup stations, alteration areas, and jewelry and shoe shopping areas. The girls get to walk through the stations with their 'prom-consultant' to help them pick out the perfect prom look! The day concludes with a red carpet reveal hosted by Monte Durham of TLC's Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta. He is also on hand throughout the day to ensure his personal touch is given to every ensemble before each girl says "yes to the prom dress."
All remaining dresses and accessories are made available for other select area high school girls on a separate shopping day hosted at Discovery. Dresses not selected will be donated to Becca's Closet.
If you want to experience the day for yourself, you can tune in to a new, 90-minute 'Say Yes to the Prom' special following several students from this year’s Los Angeles event, premiering on TLC on Saturday, April 1.
