Our Story

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!
