Thank you for your interest in Project Graduation!

Project Graduation is a drug and alcohol-free celebration that takes place at a fun-filled venue that has something for each graduate to enjoy, on the night of RHAM High School’s graduation.

Our 2021 and 2022 graduates went to Revolutions in South Windsor and had a blast! Graduates are bussed to the location on the night of graduation where they enjoy being together as a class one last time. Entertainment, prizes, food, and games keep the graduates safe on an evening that statistically ranks as the highest in car accidents due to impairment.

AHM Youth & Family Services has proudly coordinated Project Graduation for over 25 years with thousands of graduates in attendance! 

The benefits of Project Graduation are great! 

  • Emphasizes prudent decision-making about drinking, drug taking, and driving and endeavors to establish chemical-free celebrations as the norm 
  • Eliminates teen decisions about drinking or drugs on graduation night, and the entire community is assured that graduates are in a safe environment 
  • Provides every graduate with a party to attend; no one is excluded or left out 
  • Allows all graduates to celebrate together in one location 

Project Graduation Parent CommitteeWhat to Know Before You Sign-up:

  • AHM has coordinated Project Graduation for RHAM High School for 26 years and some of the fall and winter fundraisers are already being planned BUT we would like more to ensure we have the funds to support this memorable event for our 2023 graduates. Prices have gone up! And donations have gone down.   
  • Junior and senior parents are incredibly important to AHM because you know the students better than AHM and can provide keen insight to what is best for this class, plus you can get the word out about the underlying importance of having a safe celebration and to spread the word about our fundraisers within your friend groups.  
  • AHM has a dedicated Project Graduation Coordinator who runs the meetings, does community outreach and creates all promotional and marketing materials for the fundraisers and events. 
  • The meeting dates and agenda are clearly defined so you know what you are getting into from the start.  We need ideas, enthusiasm, volunteers and your most of all your support. 
  • Meetings are via Zoom each month for 45 minutes on the first Wednesday of the month from 6:30 – 7:15PM.
