ABOUT AMERICAN GRADUATE
Over the past six years, public media’s American Graduate initiative has helped our country understand the importance of improving high school graduation rates for all youth. Entering its newest phase, American Graduate is evolving to focus on what happens after high school graduation, helping young people access pathways to gainful employment in high-demand sectors.
Through American Graduate: Getting to Work, the Nine Network is highlighting the changing world of work, the pathways into well-paying, in-demand jobs, and resources available to the St. Louis community. Specifically, high demand skilled work offers opportunities to people looking to start or change careers. These professions require some education and training after high school, but not necessarily a four-year degree.
