|Welcome to the JAG-Tennessee
In 1981, Jobs for Tennessee Graduates
was established. Today, JAG-Tennessee operates 45 programs serving
students in grades 9 to 12 and Out-of-School/Out-of-School Programs.
JAG Model programs are designed to identify students who possess
a significant number of barriers to stay in school, complete a high
school diploma, secure an entry level quality job that leads to
a career, and/or pursue a postsecondary education. JAG-Tennessee
Specialists, who work with 35-45 in-school students in grades 9
to 12, characterize a highly accountable program. The JAG Electronic
National Data Management System (e-NDMS) provides a data base capable
of answering three questions: Who is Served?; What Services are
Delivered? and, What Results are Achieved?
JAG Model programs regularly exceed a 90 percent graduation rate
with at least 80 percent of graduates experiencing a positive outcome
(i.e. employed, in the military, or pursuing a postsecondary education)
during the 12-month post-graduation follow-up period.
