    American Graduate: Let’s Make it Happen

    The staggering rate of dropouts in America poses a serious threat to our national welfare -- and to the lives of young people at risk. More than 25% of the cur- rent ninth graders will not graduate from high school. It is a problem that must be solved. Public media is joining the fight -- with a bold initiative, American Graduate.

    American Graduate: Let’s Make it Happen is a public media initiative supported by the Corportation for Public Broadcasting, Vegas PBS and other partners to help local communities address the dropout crisis. American Graduate builds on pub- lic media’s long-standing commitment to education by convening conversations, forming and strengthening partnerships between public television and radio stations along with local schools, businesses and community organizations to help students graduate.

    Vegas PBS is working with national experts, state leaders, Clark County School District (CCSD) Divisions, students, parents and teachers of target schools to develop meaningful messaging, educational resources, and professional development resources. A three-pronged approach has been developed to reach all levels of the community: Outreach in the Community, Production on-air and Online Resources.

    An American Graduate Champion commits their time, skills and resources to make sure that young people succeed. He or she is an individual who plays an active role in improving educational outcomes for stu- dents. A champion is a person who is active in the lives of young people or a volunteer who creates a posi-

    tive environment daily for youth in their community.
