The original Project Graduation was held in Oxford Hills, Maine in 1980, a year after their deadliest commencement season, when 12 teenagers (five in one crash alone) lost their lives to drug and alcohol-related incidents.
In 1989, the parents in Acton and Boxborough Massachusetts held their first Project Graduation celebration at ABRHS to:
Provide a memorable, fun and safe celebration for graduating seniors
Help prevent our community's young adults from becoming accident statistics
Allow parents to rest easy because their children are safely celebrating with peers
Help keep our teens safe
We need $ 25,000 and lots of volunteers to throw an all-night party with prizes, food and activities for over 450 graduating seniors. Over the years this has been made possible by generous parent donations, business donations, a small ticket fee, and hundreds of volunteer hours.
There's no telling how many lives are saved by Project Graduation. Please help us make it a success by contributing time or money or both!
