American Graduate Day will feature over 20 national partner organizations to spotlight solutions to the nation’s dropout crisis. These partner organizations are working with public media stations to help young people stay in school and on track for on-time graduation. In addition to national partner organizations, public radio and television stations have also launched on-the-ground efforts working with regional and local partner organizations to engage at risk youth and to keep students on-track to high school graduation.

"American Graduate is a wonderful program! I am committed to doing whatever I can to help students stay in school and graduate. When students start school in pre-K or kindergarten, they do not begin with the mindset of dropping out; we, as parents, educators, and leaders, have to do something about that.”
