Established in 2005, Operation PROM is a national 501 c 3 nonprofit organization that helps low-income students attend their Proms by providing free Prom dresses and tuxedos. Operation PROM provides resources, opportunity and mentoring to at-risk teens,those who are homeless, sick, or disabled.
To date, Operation PROM has helped thousands of students across the U.S. attend their Prom at little or no cost. To request a free Prom dress or tuxedo, students must be recommended by their guidance counselor and meet the requirements such as a financial need, and the student should be passing all of their classes.
100% of Operation PROM’s staff is made up volunteers. No one at Operation PROM takes a salary.
Operation PROM is partnered with several community organizations, including departments of Social Services, churches, and hospitals.
