A physical or mental health diagnosis. A difficult situation at home. A lack of transportation or internet access. We know thousands of students are facing these challenges – and more – making it harder for them to succeed in a traditional classroom.
To help these students achieve a bright future, JAG Nebraska utilizes a programming model developed by the national Jobs for America’s Graduates organization. The programming is conducted on-site at schools during school hours, and it helps students develop their skillsets and overcome hurdles so they can succeed in the classroom and the future workplace.
Join us to hear from community leaders about the impact of JAG Nebraska and network with change makers at Quarterly Conversations!
The tournament will begin with a shotgun start at Tara Hills Golf Course. Golfers receive 18 holes of play, a cart, drinks, dinner and the opportunity to win pin prizes.

Members help students grow their professional skills by engaging in a variety of volunteer opportunities including a mentorship program with JAG Nebraska students.
Join us as we participate in UWM’s community-wide signature volunteer events, Shine Bright and Day of Caring.
