Launched in 1992 by a small but determined group of students, parents, and school personnel, Project Graduation 2022, on June 11, will be the 30th annual celebration of our graduating seniors from Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools.

The promise of Project Graduation is to give graduating seniors a memorable and fun celebration that keeps them off the road, prevents any of them from becoming an accident statistic, and allows parents peace of mind knowing that their child is safely celebrating with peers.

Project Graduation has become much more than an event that occurs on graduation night. It is a community-wide effort to create a SAFE, positive drug and alcohol-free environment for our seniors as they celebrate their first night as high school graduates.

Project Graduation has grown with our student population over the years, and each year it is given a new personality by the senior class planning it. Held at UNC’s Student Union, Project Graduation is a celebration from 11pm to 4am that includes entertainment from a hypnotist, inflatables, casino games, a photo booth, music, food, and much, much more! Every senior receives a keepsake t-shirt with this year’s theme as well as many opportunities to win scholarships and prizes. Project Graduation is only made possible with YOUR help of donations, corporate sponsorships, and volunteer hours. Please donate today and help us meet our goal of raising $70,000.
