Jobs for America's Graduates, founded in 1980, has served approximately 750,000 participants in JAG Model Programs in more than 32 states and 800 programs conducted in Middle Schools, High Schools, Community Colleges, and Community-Based Organizations. For over three decades, JAG Model Programs have achieved extraordinary outcomes, including:
kept at-risk youth in middle school and high school through graduation; assisted JAG graduates in securing an entry level job leading to career advancement opportunities; encouraged and helped JAG graduates pursue a postsecondary education; and provided program participants with competency-based classroom experiences, recognition and leadership opportunities in the motivational JAG student organization, work-based learning experiences prior to and for 12 months following graduation from high school; and a network of relationships that will enhance the outcomes of JAG, a confidence-building and motivating national student organization with service-learning activities and numerous opportunities for recognition, active local chapters, and assistance in becoming more than when participants were interviewed and selected for a JAG Model program. The purpose of JAG has always been to "make a difference" in the personal, professional, and career life of program participants.
The core of a successful program is its ability to track participants served, services delivered and outcomes achieved, produce statistical reports for local, state and national use, and produce periodic descriptive reports that help identify:"achievement gaps", "best practices" and strategies" to overcome barriers to success for the young people served across the JAG National Network.
