CPB is requesting proposals from firms to provide strategic advice to CPB to advance and support CPB's American Graduate initiative. American Graduate: Let's Make it Happen ("American Graduate") is a multi-year public media initiative, supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), to assist public media television and radio stations and national public media and paratner organizations in identifying and implementing solutions to address the high school dropout crisis in their local communities, encouraging students to finish high school and reinforcing the importance of education beyond high school. Additional information about the American Graduate initiative may be found at: http://www.americangraduate.org.
The advisor will be expected to provide strategic advice to CPB in order to assist CPB in planning and structuring the American Graduate initiative's ongoing response to the high school dropout crisis. CPB expects to retain the firm for a one year term, renewable on an annual basis for up to two (2) additional years, at CPB's discretion. While the contract for services will be on a fixed-fee basis, the project is expected to require up to forty (40) hours of work per month, with some months requiring more and some less effort.
