I WILL GRADUATE WRISTBAND CAMPAIGN

The I WILL GRADUATE dropout prevention wristband awareness campaign is here! The wristbands were created as a visible symbol to discourage students from dropping out of school and encourage the importance of education amongst the youth. The color purple was chosen to represent the campaign because purple stands for good judgment. We want our youth to use good judgment skills in order to graduate. The I WILL GRADUATE bracelet will sell individually for $2 US as well as in packs of 10, 100, and 1,000 as part of an effort to raise money for the I WILL GRADUATE CAMPAIGN initiatives to keep our youth in school. 

The goal of the I WILL GRADUATE CAMPAIGN is to communicate the importance of education, to the youth, raise awareness about dropout prevention, connect people to actions they can take to make a difference while supporting students in their communities.
