American Graduate is a collaboration between WHRO and area businesses, educational institutions, and community service organizations to help students, parents, educators and counselors help young people and adults and veterans re-entering the workforce to find pathways to career success in high-demand jobs that do not require four-year degrees.

Through multimedia content and promotion, WHRO showcases the work being done to help students, parents, educators, and businesses become aware of and connect with training, apprenticeships, resources and job searches to jumpstart a career.

This multi-year, collaborative community initiative promotes the advantages and opportunities provided by skilled careers. Additionally, American Graduate provides a pipeline of qualified candidates ready for 21st century jobs in Hampton Roads.

This initiative is made possible through the American Graduate: Getting to Work grant through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
