Jobs for Arizona’s Graduates (JAG) is a non-profit 501(c)3 that partners with school districts, the business community, the public sector, and other non-profits to support and assure the success of our mission. JAG’s mission is to help young people stay in school and to acquire the academic, personal, leadership and vocational skills they will need to be successful upon graduation. Our mission is realized through our program application:
“JAG also enhanced my life skills that were not strong because I did not have prior knowledge of how to cope with the negative aspects in my life. I was lost on what to do to better my life. I soon learned that my future started with school and my performance in school improved with a new mind set. I am now a better communicator and have a plan for my future thanks to JAG.”

"My JAG Coordinator understood that I not only needed to complete high school but faced many barriers and challenges at home. During high school, my JAG program provided me with career development, helped me build a strong resume, and assisted me in completing my college application and more. Don't think about JAG as a program but as a commitment to your future self."

“I have noticed how the things that I have been taught transfer over to my everyday life in a way. For example, since I began I have noticed I am more aware of smaller things that otherwise would go unnoticed, I pay attention in class, it seems that everything is more easily comprehensible.”
