About JAG

Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) is a state-based national non-profit organization dedicated to preventing dropouts among young people who are most at-risk.  In more than three decades of operation, JAG has delivered consistent, compelling results – helping nearly three-quarters of a million young people stay in school through graduation, pursue postsecondary education and secure quality entry-level jobs leading to career advancement opportunities.

 

 

JAG Program Success at Pittsburg (KS) High School

The name of the program is called "Jobs for America's Graduates" or JAG for short. It identifies students at risk of dropping out of high school, then helps them stay in school, graduate, and go right into the workforce. If they chose, they can even go into to college, which is where Ivon Rueda plans to be this time next year.

"I will be the first one to graduate high school and go to college," said Ivon Rueda, JAG program participant.
