Who: Camille's Closet, a program of the Greensboro Youth Council, is dedicated to collecting new and almost new formal dresses, shoes and accessories to provide them free of charge to Guilford County's high school students who would otherwise be unable to afford them.
What: We provide young ladies with a "shopping" experience and volunteers to help them find their dream dress in a safe and caring environment.

2015 Camille's Closet
This year, we added new and exciting elements to Camille's Closet to attract more participants and to give young ladies an incredible shopping experience. Our dress drive was successful and we had a significant increase in participants. We look forward to providing this program again in 2015!
Donated dresses, shoes, and accessories may be dropped off at any of our locations between February 16 and March 13. Please check back for a complete list of locations.

Young ladies wanting to receive a dress for prom can attend one of our shopping days in April at the GYC Office, 501 Yanceyville St. Shopping times are given on a first-come, first-serve basis. You do not have to register in advance. Please check back for the 2015 shopping days. If you have any questions, please contact us at 336-373-2740.
