JAG NE provides mentoring, academic tutoring, job training and placement for students with multiple barriers; activities which improve graduation rates, helps students access living-wage employment, and establishes long-term self-sufficiency. Programming is delivered in partnership with local school districts, during the school day, for credit, using an evidence-based model created by the national Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) program. The model operates in three primary domains: graduation, workplace skills, and postsecondary transition, each with specific strategies.
The JAG NE Middle School Career Specialist will be responsible for a program within a chosen middle school in the Omaha Public School District.
