TechGYRLS is an after school program that gives girls in elementary and middle school a chance for hands on exploration of graphic arts, web design, animation, and robotics in a mentoring environment. The purpose of the program is to teach girls technical skills early in life in order to help alleviate future barriers to gender-oriented professions and self-sufficiency.

Prom Dress Day

Prom Dress Day is an annual event held by the YWCA of Bethlehem. Local area high school juniors and seniors receive gently-used prom gowns and accessories to offset the cost of attending prom. Cost to attend is $5.00 for gown and accessories with refund if no dress is found.

Our 2015 Prom Dress Day was held at the Historic State Theatre in Easton, PA on Saturday, March 28, 2015.  Over 200 gowns, accessories, shoes and make-up were selected by local high school students living in the Greater Lehigh Valley.  We are honored to have been part of their Prom experience.

For information on how you can participate in our 2016 Prom Dress Day, please contact Stephanie Hnatiw at 610-867-4669, ext. 102.

Special thanks you to our SPONSORS, VOLUNTEERS, and PROM DRESS DONORS for making our 2015 event such a huge success.  Thanks to your generosity, you helped to put a smile on the face of hundreds of young women and their families in our community!

Accessories, such as shoes and make-up, are available for the girls.

Girls choose from a variety of gowns.

Seamstresses are on staff to help girls get the right fit.
