"Journey to Jobs" will feature an Amarillo segment.

(UPDATED NOV. 6) Tascosa High School’s Snack Shak and Rebel Rack program was selected by American Graduate to be a featured segment on the national PBS program Journey to Jobs.

The full segment debuted in the Sept. 26 episode of The Handle and can be seen above.

Journey to Jobs aired on PBS stations across the nation this fall. It can be viewed in full here: https://www.thirteen.org/programs/wliw21-specials/journey-to-jobs-2vnyuz/.

“We’re so happy that Tascosa High School, Amarillo Independent School District and Snack Pak 4 Kids let us tell their story and that we can now share this success with people all across the country,” said Kyle Arrant, director of operations.

American Graduate is public media’s initiative to shine a light on pathways to graduation and successful student outcomes. It is made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. 

Snack Shak and Rebel Rack — a partnership with Snack Pak 4 Kids — is a school organization providing weekend meals for students at Tascosa, as well as an on-campus clothing closet. 

The program empowers students to serve others by learning important skills valuable to employers — how to manage large scale projects, how to work together in teams, and importantly, how their actions of service have meaningful impact on others that they anonymously serve.
