To brighten the black suit, he spent another $3 for a purple dress shirt by D’Amante.

Top 3 Ideas for a Safe After-Prom Party

ely-hs-dj-crowd-5-spots-100pc-300.jpgAfter-Prom events are successful when the school and the community get involved.
The Gannett Newspapers recently assembled a teen panel in Westchester, New York to discuss the problem of “boredom in the ‘burbs”. Here are some of the suggestions the teens made:

Communities should have more teen-friendly businesses. Teens liked pizzerias, diners, and ice cream shops where they were allowed to hang out. Schools or community centers should offer more activities, including “open gym” during the summers so the kids have a place to go. Sports facilities should offer teen hour.

1) School-Sponsored Events

Classrooms could be transformed into fun rooms and can have dancing, food, games and prizes. Parents can stay calm since these events are chaperoned by teachers or parent volunteers.

2) Throw a House Party

Plan a parent-supervised party. Order a pizza or party subs and have fun coming up with creative games or a DVD for your guests. Nervous parents can check with the host parent to be sure that the party will be supervised and there won’t be any alcohol. Tell them to come by and help supervise if they want. See below for more tips on having an after-prom party at home.

3) Community Activities

Get businesses involved with planning an after-prom party. Some might have events planned or maybe they will if you approach them about it. There are few things that the community can provide. See below for ideas about how the community can help out.
