New Hampshire Jobs for America’s Graduates
Vision – Ensuring New Hampshire’s youth are empowered to achieve their full potential.
The Mission of Jobs for America’s Graduates (NH-JAG) is to cultivate youth success through academic, leadership, and workforce opportunities in collaboration with business and community partnerships. NH JAG achieves this by offering year-round, individualized services that are competency based, incorporating Project Based Learning, Resiliency Skills Training, Support Services and Employer Engagement throughout the program.
NH JAG currently operates 9 programs located in schools throughout the state, 8 high school programs and 1 out-of-school, healthcare (LNA) training program. All NH-JAG programs are helping youth experience the value of an education while developing teamwork, life skills, leadership, community service, and workplace skills.
NH JAG follows the nationally recognized JAG model consisting of a comprehensive set of services designed to support students through high school graduation and credential attainment. NH JAG staff work diligently to foster an environment that promotes academic success, career and leadership development in a supportive atmosphere.
The long-term goal of the JAG Model is to increase full-time employment among under served young people as well as ensure their ability to remain employed in their communities for a significant period. NH JAG has been serving youth statewide for 34 years with a focus on eliminating barriers, keeping “at-risk” youth in school and increasing the rate of future success.
The JAG Advantage
The JAG Advantage is based on a promise. JAG will deliver learner-centered instruction to ensure youth achieve their fullest potential. In upholding this promise, JAG is developing the talent our nation needs to fuel the economy with new members of the workforce who are both prepared and resilient.
NH-JAG Youth Specialists facilitate learning, skill development and community involvement empowering youth to identify their goals and to define and follow a productive path within which to achieve those goals. The positive impact made possible by the NH-JAG program is evidenced by the many students who have participated and, as a result, are enjoying rewarding careers and are pursuing further academic training. Our goal is to help youth become financially independent and contributing citizens in their NH communities.
