Greetings from Tisch WNET Studios in New York City, at the corner of 66th Street and Broadway, where we’ve just wrapped a day-long taping for American Graduate Day 2015. Hosted by award-winning journalist Jane Pauley (NBC and CBS) and Hari Sreenivasan (PBS Newshour Weekend and SciTechNow), these pre-taped segments will be featured on the live broadcast on October 3 (check local listings). Today’s shoot included interviews and discussions with leaders, representatives, and students from a range of non-profit organizations working to keep kids on the path to graduation.

WNET’s American Graduate Day production team and hosts were joined by representatives from eleven national nonprofit organizations: Autism Speaks, Born This Way Foundation, Children’s Health Fund, GiGi’s Playhouse, Goodwill GoodGuides, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, The Opportunity Network, Reading is Fundamental, Save the Children, SEO Scholars, and United Way.

Stay tuned to the blog to learn more about these organizations, and the incredible work that they do to keep students on the path to graduation.
