Bridgewater-Raritan High School (BRHS) Project Graduation is hosting an amazing, family fun event on March 21 with Bridgewater and Raritan Township Municipal and school staff playing an entertaining basketball game against the Harlem Wizards.  The Hometown Heroes take on the Harlem Wizards!

BRHS Project Graduation helps our kids stay safe. In addition to an all night celebration for graduating high school seniors to attend a drug and alcohol free celebration, Project Graduation includes a year-long series of education, activities, competitions, and fundraising to raise donations to defray the costs. 

Across the country, PG has inspired a new tradition for graduating seniors. Perspectives in Disease Prevention-Maine observed that “Project Graduation has become much more than an event that occurs on graduation night. It is a community wide movement that strives to create a supportive environment that invites open communication between youths and adults related to drugs and alcohol.”

Project Graduation is special because the students make a conscious decision to enjoy their graduation night without alcohol or drugs. No other group, including parents and school personnel, can make that decision for the student.

BRHS adopted the PG model some 20+ years ago and it is gaining popularity each year. Once again, the Class of 2013 will celebrate at Dave & Buster’s; enjoying unlimited food, soft drinks, arcade games, bowling, billiards, sumo wrestling, dancing, and more. Project Graduation is run by a committee of parent, staff, and student volunteers who donate their time and talents.  PG is also supported by donations from our generous community businesses, families, HS organizations, and the Bridgewater-Raritan Municipal Alliance.  We thank all those who support this great cause. Contact brhsprojectgraduation@gmail.com for more information regarding volunteering, tickets, donations, and sponsorship.  See you at the game!
