ABOUT THE INITIATIVE

Over the past six years, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) has supported public media’s American Graduate initiative, helping our country understand the importance of improving high school graduation rates for all youth. Entering its newest phase, American Graduate places its focus on what happens after high school graduation, helping young people access pathways to gainful employment in high-demand career sectors.


Through American Graduate: Getting to Work, CET is highlighting the changing world of work, the pathways into well-paying, in-demand jobs, and resources available to Greater Cincinnati residents. Specifically, middle-skills jobs offer opportunities to people looking to start or change a career. These jobs require some education and training after high school, but not necessarily a four-year degree.

CET is also partnering with public television stations in Columbus and Cleveland to address issues of statewide significance including career tech education, employment legislation, alternative pathways to careers and more.
