American Graduate Day USA  broadcast from the Tisch WNET Studios at Lincoln Center in New York City, and tells the story of Community Partners and how they provide support, advice, and intervention services to at-risk students, families, and schools. With every Community Partner profile, viewers were invited to take an active role in their work and in the American Graduate initiative by volunteering their time, talent, or other resources. The event also served to kick-off a week of American Graduate-related programming airing on public television stations nationally. Each half hour  featured a 23-minute segment about a national organization working to keep kids on track and in schools.

Local support for the American Graduate Initiative and this broadcast is made possible by Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection, preparing students for graduation, college, and a career.
