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.
