American Graduate

American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen is a public media initiative, supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), to help students stay on the path to graduation and future success. Public broadcasting has a long history improving educational outcomes for high-need students and communities. The dropout crisis demands attention now, and CPB is rising to the challenge of doing their part to address this problem. They are working with national and community-based partners to do two things—raise awareness by creating targeted, national and local content on all facets of the issue for broadcast, and engage and empower students at risk of dropping out through community collaborations and classroom resources.

Together We Can Foundation

In July of 2008, the Together We Can Foundation (TWC) was formed as a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation in the state of Virginia by former Director of Human Services for Virginia Beach, Terry Jenkins, and a group of concerned citizens. The purpose of the organization was to help create more positive outcomes for young adults aging out of foster care. Specifically, our mission was to ensure the successful transition of young adults from foster care to independent adult life. This an often-overlooked population at an extremely high risk for the “symptoms” of disconnection: unemployment, substance abuse, homelessness, and incarceration. All too often, these young people leave foster care without a direction, without a plan, without savings, without skills and without a safety net of family and caring adults.
