American Graduate Day is a live, seven-hour multi-platform broadcast that leverages the power and reach of public media to focus on organizations and individuals keeping kids on the path to graduation. This year’s event took place Saturday, October 3 at Lincoln Center in New York City.
American Graduate Day centers around the critical themes of: career readiness and college completion, caring consistent adults, dropout prevention and re-engagement, early education, more and better learning, special needs, and STEAM. Journalists, thought leaders, and celebrities joined together to raise awareness of the incredible work being done across the country to keep kids in school.
