    What is Project Graduation?
    Project Graduation is a program offered by many high schools in the United States, in which adult-supervised and alcohol-free activities are offered as part of a post-graduation party, as an alternative to student-run events involving alcoholic or other drugs.

    In 1979, the community of Oxford Hills, Maine experienced seven alcohol and drug related teen deaths during the commencement season of that year. In the wake of these tragedies, the community rallied together to offer the next year’s seniors a safe and alternative event.  The party was held at the local fair grounds and called “Project Graduation”. The event was a huge success and became the model for the nation, helping to protect the lives of graduating seniors in all states. To read the original 1980 newspaper article, click here

    Project Graduation has become much more than an event that occurs on graduation night. It is a community-wide planning process that strives to create a caring, supportive and SAFE drug and alcohol free environment for our teenagers during this very exciting time in their lives.
