2012 Smith Scholars

For the past four years the Jobs for America’s Graduates Board of Directors and Friends of JAG have offered the Smith Scholarships to students from the JAG network. In 2012 the scholarship program saw double the applicants compared to 2011. There were 112 seniors in high school that submitted their applications to be considered for one of twelve $1,000 scholarships. The nominees chosen by the scholarship committee represented ten of the JAG programs from around the nation. The committee was very pleased with the submissions and felt the quality of applicants was exceptional.

This spring Jobs for Maine’s Graduates (JMG) held their annual Career Development Conference at the Civic Center in Augusta. The event gives JAG students an opportunity to participate in competitive events and show case skills in leadership, career development and civic awareness.  These are just a hand full of the skills the students work on throughout the year in the classroom and skills that tie directly to the mission of the JMG program.

JAG-South Dakota

While Jobs for America’s Graduates has a strong presence in 33 states, every state and its students could benefit from a JAG program. Since its inception, one continual mission has been to grow the JAG organization and to offer services in states that do not currently offer a program. In 2009 South Dakota was one such state.
