Get Involved

March 21, 2012

Hundreds of thousands of students dropout of high school every year.

FRONTLINE is working with our partners in public media to address this urgent national crisis. You can get involved in our Dropout Nation community campaign and help us to take action. FRONTLINE is making DVDs available to more than 100 communities in every state to host screenings and community conversation that builds local and national awareness of the crisis; shows pathways for community involvement; and presents models for effective partnerships that engage students, families, community groups, businesses, policy makers and schools.

Our project is a part of American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen, a public media initiative made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

FRONTLINE’s special DVD is a community screening toolkit that will encourage conversations around dropout prevention and spur community members to take action to end the dropout crisis. You can work with FRONTLINE and the American Graduate Community Hub stations to make an impact in your community.
