Convergence Services, Inc. helped develop and launch the landmark American Graduate project from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which is helping to reduce America’s alarmingly high school drop out rate. We provided strategic consulting to CPB about public media’s overall educational direction, including the Ready to Learn program and CPB’s response to the five-year multimillion dollar grant solicitation from the U.S. Department of Education.
