Project Graduation: Plan a Memorable, Safe Grad Night

Planning a Project Graduation event can feel a bit daunting, but with the right tools and a little creativity, you can throw a bash that’ll be the talk of the town. Or at least the talk of the graduating class!

Whether you’re a seasoned planner or a first-timer, here’s a quick guide on what Project Graduation is, some fun activity ideas, and how Cheddar Up can streamline the whole process.

What is Project Graduation?

Project Graduation is a fantastic initiative aimed at keeping high school graduates safe on their big night. Typically held immediately following graduation ceremonies, these events are alcohol-free and full of activities that celebrate the students’ achievements in a secure environment.

The goal? To provide a fun, engaging, and safe celebration that keeps everyone out of trouble while having loads of fun.
 

Project Graduation Activities and Venues

The sky’s the limit when it comes to activities for Project Graduation. Think about what your grads might love:
 

  • Themed dance party
  • Casino night with fake money
  • Karaoke contest
  • Magician to dazzle the crowd
  • Mini-olympics competitions

As for venues, choose a place that can accommodate your activities and guest size. School gyms or local community centers are often perfect for their size and versatility. If you’re looking for something different, consider renting an amusement park for the night or a banquet hall that can be decked out in school colors. 

Fundraising for Project Graduation

To make this night memorable without breaking the bank, consider hosting fundraisers throughout the year. Bake sales, car washes, and charity auctions are great ways to gather funds. Partnering with local businesses for sponsorships or donations can also give your budget a healthy boost. With this template, you can start collecting funds for every aspect of the event:
