Project Graduation

EVENT INFO: Project Graduation is Friday, May 24, 2024.

Project Graduation is a drug- and alcohol-free all night celebration for the graduating seniors from Collier County's public high schools. It was established in 1985 as a way to educate and deter young adults from drinking or taking illicit drugs while celebrating this special event.

The benefits of Project Graduations are:

  • Keeps our graduates off the roads on the night of their graduation.
  • Offers a safe option for those who choose to celebrate with friends in this special way
  • Since its inception, there have not been any drug- or alcohol-related motor vehicle incidents involving members of our graduating classes on graduation night
