|Welcome to the JAG-Iowa
In 1999, Iowa-JAG, Inc. (I-JAG) was established
as a non-profit corporation supported by the Iowa legislature,
corporate and foundation contributions, public sector grants and
participating school funds. Today, JAG-Iowa operates 22 programs
in 19 schools across the state of Iowa serving students in grades
9 to 12. I-JAG’s mission is to assist students who exhibit
multiple barriers to success, in graduating from high school and/or
successfully transitioning from high school to continued education
and/or careers. Through innovative partnerships with businesses
and industries I-JAG is helping young people find success in high
school and in the world beyond.
I-JAG has averaged a 93% graduation rate since 1999. 87%
of I-JAG graduates from the class of 2007 experienced a positive
outcome (i.e. employed, in the military, or pursuing a postsecondary
education) during the 12-month post-graduation follow-up period.
