Throughout the year, You Wear it Well collects donations of new and used formal wear, shoes, and accessories. Our work culminates in ‘Boutique Day‘, held annually on the first Sunday in March. Grad outfits, including formal gowns, suits and tuxedos, shoes, jewelry, and accessories, are available for the students to choose and keep, free of charge. Hair styling, makeup application, professional photos, and a buffet are just some of the services available to students.

Each grad is provided with a Personal Assistant to help them navigate the day.  The personal assistant spends the day celebrating the student’s success, discussing their future plans, and ensuring that each student feels pampered and special.

We provide so much more than ‘just a grad outfit’ – students who attend our program are more likely to stay in school and graduate.

For more information on where to drop off donations, please see our list under the ‘How to Help’ tab, or email us at info@youwearitwell.org 

We are honoured to live and work on the traditional and unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples including the qiqéyt (Qayqayt), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) First Nations.
