The focus of the After Prom committee is to provide our students with a safe, alcohol and drug free party to enjoy as part of their prom night activities to avoid the kinds of tragedies that can ruin lives and shatter communities. Our goal is to have 100% participation from the students who attend the prom dance.

The evening is filled with activities, entertainment, food, and prizes. All students are encouraged to come, including those that do not attend the dance.

We need volunteers on Friday night (decoration/set up) and on Saturday night/Sunday morning.
