JAG Nevada offers jobs for Nevada's graduates
LAS VEGAS (CW Las Vegas) —
The JAG multi-year program is a highly effective, data-driven model that raises graduation rates and prepares participants by honing their work readiness skills. JAG students graduate at higher rates than their peers and are exceptionally prepared with a toolbox of workplace skills that lead to success at work, in postsecondary education, and/or the military.
Jobs for Nevada’s Graduates Inc. is a private Nevada nonprofit formed at the request of the Nevada Governor’s Office to serve as the home base for the Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) program in Nevada.
JAG Nevada has expanded from seven programs serving 200 students to 53 programs serving more than 3,300 Nevada students, achieving a 92-percent graduation rate.
From now through Jan. 31, 2018, they are hosting a clothing drive for male and female high school students to wear during job interviews with drop off locations around the valley. Items needed include pants, dress shirts, ties, blouses, skirts, dresses, shoes, jackets, and more. Businesses interested in making a bulk donation or to host an in-house company drive can contact Marcus Sherfield at 702-410-8078.
