JAG Specialist

Primarily responsible for fully implementing the Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) Model in the school. The JAG Specialist takes personal responsibility for ensuring that the targeted 35-45 students who are at risk of dropping out of school and/or failing to successfully transition into the workplace achieve expected outcomes, including graduation and placement into postsecondary education, the workforce and/or the military. To achieve the expected outcomes, the JAG Specialist will provide participating youth with employability and life survival skills through classroom instruction based on JAG’s competencies (37 to 84 depending on the number of years enrolled in the JAG Program), guidance/counseling, academic remediation, work-based learning experiences, postsecondary and career advisement and provide a twelve-month follow-up period following graduation.
