American Graduate: Let’s Make it Happen is public media’s long-term commitment to supporting community-based solutions to the dropout crisis. Supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), more than 80 public radio and television stations have joined forces with over 1,000 partners and at-risk schools across 30 states.

Through the American Graduate initiative, WHYY is expanding its education coverage on air and online, helping to shed light on a complicated and often confusing education landscape. WHYY’s media instructors are working directly with students in WHYY Media Labs at five city schools, where students are learning to develop their voices and share their stories as they create original documentaries.
