About The American Graduate Program
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) awarded Mississippi Public Broadcasting a grant for the American Graduate: Getting to Work initiative to help advance education and career readiness locally. MPB is working with partners across the state to assess workforce challenges and opportunities, and produce content focused on the essential skills needed for students and workers to succeed in the job markets of today and tomorrow.
“The American Graduate initiative attracted local business and community leader support and engagement by focusing on keeping young people on the path to success in school and life,” said Pat Harrison, CPB President and CEO. “All Americans want our young people to be prepared to fill jobs that currently are unfilled because of a skills gap.”
