The current focus of America’s Promise Alliance is Grad Nation, a campaign to dramatically increase high school graduation rates. Graduation has become the “second starting line” in life, and without improved attainment rates, there will be a generation untrained for 21st-century jobs. Over the next three years, the alliance will hold 100 community Grad Nation Summits across the country to spark and support change at a community level. The summits bring together business people, community leaders, educators and students to form partnerships, share resources and identify solutions. In supporting education together, communities become stronger, safer and more economically viable. Watch this video to learn more about America’s Promise Alliance, including interviews with CEO John Comperts and participating community leaders in Louisville, Miami and Providence.
