The importance of the event is that it takes a financial burden off families but now the youth of NDG see it as an event that they intend to participate in regardless of financial need.

Sustainable and Inclusive PROM Giveaway: The primary objective is to foster inclusivity, pride, and sustainability by providing formal wear for PROM students from every background. Sustainable Fashion: We highlight the benefits of reusing and recycling formal wear. We aim to encourage students to consider sustainable fashion choices.
Youth Engagement and Empowerment: Another key goal is to actively engage and empower the youth of NDG. The event should be more than just a financial aid program; it should be a source of excitement and anticipation for young participants. The objective is to create an atmosphere where youth feel welcome, have fun, and look forward to being part of the event. This can foster a sense of belonging and community involvement among the younger generation.
Community Building: Beyond its immediate benefits, the event contributes to community building in NDG. It brings together various organizations and individuals to collaborate on a common goal. By working together to support youth, these organizations strengthen the social fabric of NDG and promote a sense of unity and shared responsibility for the well-being of the community's younger members.
