Provides support to at-risk youth to encourage them to achieve high school graduation. Along with academic support, JAG also provides work-based learning experiences that will lead them to further education and training and rewarding careers. Arkansas’s JAG program is the state affiliate of the national organization Jobs for America’s Graduates.
Jobs for Arkansas’s Graduates (JAG) is designed to assist career and technical students whose ability to successfully graduate from high school and obtain meaningful employment is in jeopardy.
National JAG’s mission is to assist at-risk and disadvantaged youths in graduating from high school (or receiving a GED and/or marketable skills) and thereafter finding and keeping quality jobs through a state-supported school-to-work transition program.
If you have questions concerning either program, you can call the Office of Special Populations at (501) 682-1800.
