The Nine Network of Public Media teamed up with students from Cardinal Ritter College Prep's Intern Leadership Program to work on the American Graduate Initiative. Working together, the students created a project that utilizes youth voice to inform St. Louis about the dropout crisis.

The students set out to educate St. Louis about the dropout crisis through surveying residents and creating a video that features interviews with community members and community leaders discussing challenges that prevent students from staying in school and the community-driven solutions that can mitigate those challenges.

During their internship, the students learned how to create online presentations using Prezi. Click below to see their final presentation about #TheDropN.
