JOURNEY TO JOBS is a one-hour special, presented as part of the American Graduate: Getting to Work initiative, public media’s commitment to help communities illuminate pathways to gainful employment in America.
Hosted by PBS NewsHour Weekend anchor Hari Sreenivasan from the Tisch WNET Studios at Lincoln Center in New York City, JOURNEY TO JOBS will take viewers across the country, highlighting individuals and organizations who are connecting job seekers to employment at each stop.
The broadcast will tell the story of how communities are providing support, advice, and intervention services to youth, veterans, and adults in career transition. In JOURNEY TO JOBS, viewers hear directly from job seekers and the newly employed, business and nonprofit leaders, as well as program staff, volunteers and mentors as they work to create pathways to high-demand skilled careers. Each segment is tied to one of the American Graduate content strands, including Barriers to Employment, Career Pathways, Connecting Job Seekers to Networks, Innovative Career Education Models, and Mentorship.
The broadcast features segments from fifteen public media stations from across the country:
Arizona Public Media; Colorado Public Television; Detroit Public Television; KCOS-TV (El Paso, TX); KBTC (Tacoma, WA); Louisiana Public Broadcasting; Nashville Public Television; Ozarks Public Television; Panhandle PBS (Amarillo, TX); PBS SoCalKCET; South Florida PBS; Rhode Island PBS; WCNY Connected (Syracuse, NY); WFYI (Indianapolis, IN); WQLN Public Media (Erie, PA).
This extensive collaboration between WNET, CPB and other public broadcasting stations will leverage the unique strength and structure of the public media system, thereby enabling a national mobilization around this critical issue.
