About

American Graduate

Since 2011, the public media initiative American Graduate, made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), has grown into one of the largest public media collaborations across the country with over 125 local public media organizations, and national television and radio producers and distributors, working with more than 1,700 community partners. National and local reporting, public forums and town halls, and education resources drove awareness and discussions among leaders, educators, students and concerned citizens, and inspired adults to become an American Graduate Champion for the nation’s youth. Stations played an important role in helping communities address the challenges and highlight local solutions to the dropout crisis, and the national graduation rate is now at an unprecedented 84.1 percent.

American Graduate: Getting to Work

In 2018, together with 19 stations, CPB launched the initiative’s next phase, “American Graduate: Getting To Work,” to partner with schools and businesses in order to help prepare students with the skill sets and training needed to be part of the new workforce, especially in high-demand fields. APT’s “American Graduate: Getting to Work” supports partners who are addressing Alabama’s workforce crisis: the gap between job openings in high-demand skilled jobs and the shortage of people qualified to fill them.
