This is a committee lead position that requires you to attend monthly meetings on Wednesdays 6-8 PM. August-April (8 meetings, no meetings in December) annually. Our annual event is held in May.

Attending monthly meetings ensures all committees are on the same page. Your role is to work hand in hand with the Operations chair to ensure the electrical running to each power source is to code. You will direct volunteers on the installation of ceiling cables and attachment of lighting at our annual May event. The ability to create procedures and document how things are set up and wire are essential. Utilizing and uploading all procedures, notes, and changes for this committee must be put on the committee Google Drive so anyone stepping into this position doesn’t have to reinvent the wheel.

In May you must be available 8 AM-5 PM the Friday prior to our event. This is the day you and your volunteer team will install the cables and lights. If not completed in one day, you must be available Saturday morning following to complete the install. (It is also helpful if you are available the Monday before the event to do the walkthrough with inspectors in case any questions arise with your lighting.) This position could sustain a Co-Chair to work together on directing.

Mission Statement

To keep graduates and the community safe on one of the deadliest nights on the year, graduation night. Giving graduates a safe drug and alcohol-free way to celebrate this life achievement.

Description

Project Graduation is a lock-in event held at three local high schools allowing graduating seniors the opportunity to enjoy an all-night party on campus under the supervision of adults instead of taking to the streets and house parties to celebrate. The concept isn’t an Oro Valley invention by any means but was started locally nearly two decades ago by former council member Mary Snider. Before her stead in Oro Valley, Snider and her family lived in California and experienced the community-wide benefit of hosting students at the high school. "The energy on graduation night can sometimes be fatal and dangerous, so we want to provide them an alternative activity, and for 17 years, it’s been sold out," Snider said. "Kids come and they love it, and now it’s legendary." When Snider moved to town, she knew in her heart the public would benefit from such an initiative-so she brought the idea to Oro Valley Police Department Chief Daniel Sharp. It wasn’t a difficult sell, and the rest is history. "Our most valuable renewable resource is the youth," Sharp said. "The fact that the community sees that and comes out year after year...That’s what makes Oro Valley special; how the community rallies and takes care of our kids."
