I WILL GRADUATE DAY is an annual observance and a key opportunity to discourage students from dropping out of school while encouraging the importance of education amongst the youth. Since its inception in 2006 the day has been spearheaded by celebrities, high-profile individuals, educators, executives, sports figures and community leaders and has been proven to be a powerful impetus to keep students motivated to stay in school.
The I WILL GRADUATE CAMPAIGN is Entertainers 4 Education Alliance youth-focused national call to action for students, parents, churches, businesses, elected officials and the entire community to make a united effort to increase educational achievement in our youth. We want students to pledge to graduate from high school and pursue higher education. We want parents, elected officials and the community at-large to support students, at every level of need, in obtaining a high school diploma and college degree.
The goal of the I WILL GRADUATE CAMPAIGN is to communicate the importance of education, to the youth, raise awareness about the dropout issue, connect people to actions they can take to make a difference while supporting students in their communities.
