American Graduate: Getting to Work 2018-2019

APT’s American Graduate is a project to help more Alabamians make well-informed decisions about education and career. Part of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s national initiative American Graduate: Getting To Work, the communication project supports local partners who are addressing Alabama’s workforce crisis: the gap between job openings in high-demand, high-wage technical occupations and the shortage of people qualified to fill them.
