Celebrating a Safe and Sober Graduation

High school graduation is one of the most special and celebrated milestones in the life of a young adult. For 32 years, the Greater Naples YMCA has been proud to be a part of the annual graduation tradition in Collier County by hosting Project Graduation.

Our local Project Graduation is one of the longest-standing events of its kind in the entire country – a place where new graduates can enjoy a night of fun and celebration with their friends in a safe, drug- and alcohol-free environment.

This event is a community legacy that was established on the foundation of safety, and it has certainly delivered: We are grateful to have achieved 32 consecutive graduation nights in Collier County without an alcohol or drug related death involving our graduating seniors.

While the Greater Naples YMCA is pleased to host this event for graduates, it wouldn’t be possible without the significant efforts of the parents, schools, businesses and organizations that join together to provide the resources we need to make it a memorable evening for our special guests.
