ABOUT AMERICAN GRADUATE
American Graduate: Let’s Make it Happen is public media’s long-term commitment to supporting community-based solutions to the dropout crisis.
Supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), more than 80 public radio and television stations have joined forces with over 1,000 partners and at-risk schools across 30 states.
Each of the stations, including CPT12, will focus on dropout prevention and recovery, working in partnership with schools, agencies and organizations at the community level. Much of the focus will be on creating multi-platform content, implementing education resources, and developing interactive learning tools and experiences, particularly for middle- and high-school students. Stations will also build collaborative networks of organizations in their communities and will create new pathways for mentors and volunteers to become involved in solutions.
