ABOUT AMERICAN GRADUATE


There is growing awareness amongst local government, schools and workforce leaders that youth need more opportunities to develop work and professional skills before they leave high school.

Too few students and parents have access to information on what is available and organizations are not always working in tandem to scale out resources. There is a tremendous need to recruit more businesses and organizations to provide internships, apprenticeships and job opportunities for students.

The American Graduate initiative provides WFSU Public Media the opportunity to convene community partners, highlight effective programs, link resources, identify the gaps and create a more robust career and college pipeline.

WFSU through the American Graduate project will work with CareerSource Capital Region as well as Tallahassee and Leon County Office of Economic Vitality to identify and link students to growing career fields. By raising awareness and collaborating between agencies, we can help prepare students for tomorrow’s workforce.
