American Graduate Day - 2014

American Graduate Day 2014 mobilized stations across the country to raise awareness about the dropout crisis and spotlight local and national organizations that work to engage students, parents, teachers and communities on pathways to educational success. The daylong broadcast from the Tisch WNET Studios at Lincoln Center in New York City featured long-form programming, live breaks and pre-taped segments that told the story of community partners and how they provide support, advice and intervention services to at-risk students, families and schools. In 2014, American Graduate Day recognized more than 2.7 million American Graduate Champions—consistent, caring adults who make a difference in the life of a student and help keep them on the path to graduation and beyond.
