Broadcast live from Tisch WNET Studios in NYC, the 6th annual American Graduate Day airs Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on WXXI-TV. The four-hour special will examine the vital role mentorship plays through high school, and will explore diverse pathways to career success and workforce development opportunities.

Since 2012, the American Graduate Day broadcast has focused on telling stories, creating resources and building community connections to successfully move students from early education through high school graduation. With the graduation rate now at an all-time high, American Graduate Day is expanding the conversation and stories beyond the high school diploma, highlighting workforce trends, career pathways and job opportunities, and the necessary skills to meet industry needs in every community across America.
