JAG Nebraska is an evidence-based, for-credit classroom elective that provides professional and technical education to all students who need, want or can benefit from the assistance.
Empowering students with the skills and support to succeed in education, employment and life – that’s the mission of JAG Nebraska. By utilizing a model developed by the national Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) organization, the program is dedicated to empowering students with personal and professional development training and support to succeed in high school, further education and employment following graduation.
JAG graduates are 2.3 times more likely to be employed full-time, using the strong life skills learned while enrolled in one of JAG’s many programs.
JAG students are projected to produce over $5,000,000 in increased earnings and spending annually, building wealth that will positively influence their lives.
Graduates are projected to increase state and local tax revenue by over $200,000 by the midpoint of their careers and increase home sales nationally by $16 million.
