American Graduate Day 2014 will feature new guests and partner organizations, as well as returning hosts including Wes Moore (bestselling author and host, OWN) and Juju Chang (“Nightline” anchor, ABC News). A special goal this year is to recognize one million American Graduate Champions taking an active role in their communities by volunteering their time, talent, or other resources.
This year’s broadcast event highlights how community organizations provide support, advice, and intervention services to at-risk students, families, and schools to promote higher graduation rates. The programming themes are Early Education, Caring Consistent Adults, More and Better Learning, Special Needs Communities, STEAM Programs, Dropout Prevention and Re-Engagement and College and Career Readiness. New features this year include live entertainment and performances, and “Stories of Champions,” a new series of 14 profile pieces featuring American Graduate Champions working in communities across the nation.
Join the cause! Sign up to become an American Graduate Champion and then share your story with the world using #amgrad.
