o establish state organizations committed
to implementing the JAG Model for both in-school and out-of-school
JAG Model Programs deliver a unique set of services
to targeted youth in high school, including 12 months of post-graduation
follow-up services, that will result in the graduate pursuing a
postsecondary education and/or entering the workforce in a quality
job leading to a career.
Targeted youth include those young people that
are screened by an Advisory Committee consisting of administrators,
counselors, academic educators, and career and technical educators.
Due to budgetary constraints, a JAG Model Program is unable to serve
all young people. Targeted youth are those most at-risk of leaving
high school before graduating, failing to complete requirements
for a high school diploma, or unable to experience a smooth transition
from school to a career (with or without a postsecondary education).
A list of barriers that are used by the
Advisory Committee for screening purposes can be accessed here.
