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. 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.
Career Pathways: Apprenticeships is produced in partnership with the Alabama Office of Apprenticeship, the David Mathews Center, the Alabama Department of Commerce, the Alabama Community College System, and Apprenticeship Alabama.
Career Pathways: Apprenticeships is made possible through the generous support of Wells Fargo, American Graduate, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
