Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG)
The JAG Program, Jobs for America’s Graduates, is currently offered to Juniors and Seniors across the region. We have 8 schools with 9 programs. Those schools include Franklin County, Jennings County, Lawrenceburg, Madison, Seymour, South Dearborn, Jac-Cen-Del, and South Ripley. Seymour has 2 programs one of which is a pilot for the state's only bilingual program, and Jac-Cen-Del/South Ripley is the region's first dual program.
The JAG Program is a 1 credit hour class offered in these high schools as an elective. While in JAG, the students work on a wide array of competencies from financial literacy, public speaking, resume writing, and college/industry tours.
If you are a student at one of our participating high schools, and would like to be involved, please notify your JAG Specialists or guidance staff to get enrolled. For our community leaders, business owners, or organizations that just want to be connected to our JAG program, please contact Kristal Biehle, JAG Manager, at (812) 599-1776, or Julie Thompson, Outreach Coordinator, at (812)599-2389.
We look forward to hearing from you.
