On March 2 at 4 p.m., MPT will host a live online community conversation about the struggles faced by youth in Baltimore as they pursue a high school diploma.  The program will include young people who can speak about the challenges they face and representatives from community organizations that help at-risk youth.

To join the conversation online, tweet @ThinkportMPT using #AmGradMPT during the live streaming event.

The program, which is part of MPT's American Graduate initiative, will also run on MPT in the Spring.
