Dry Grad Guidebook for BC
For Grade 12 students across the province, high school graduation parties are an important rite of passage before entering adulthood.
Since the mid-1990s, more and more schools and parents are choosing to stage a "dry" after-grad party. The aim of a dry grad party is to reduce the risk of alcohol-related harm to the graduates, as well as the community at large, on a night when that risk is unusually high.
Life Starts Now! describes dry grad planning from start to finish, incorporating ideas and suggestions for success from previous dry grad organizers, and information on specific B.C. legislation relevant to dry grad planning. Read more, in the Life Starts Now! How to Plan a Dry Grad booklet.
