JAG hopes to help at-risk youths continue education

With a mission to focus on the labor market for teens, minorities and low-income youth, Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG), founded in 1980 by former Delaware Gov. Pete DuPont, is a nonprofit organization aimed at helping the youth, particularly at-risk youth, to stay in school, pursue post-secondary education and land jobs that lead to various career opportunities.

As of September, the national program has moved to Pennsylvania and the JAG Pa President, Anthony Powell, is enthused for its work throughout the state.

Selling Del’s Popcorn and Caramel Apples is a Pretty Sure JAG Fundraiser!

The Jobs for America’s Graduates class — JAG for short — at MacArthur High School had no problem, once they settled on those items for their fundraiser, and they raised $150. The money was to buy “JAG swag”: shirts identifying them as members of the JAG class.

“It’s for kids who have barriers, academic or personality or family at home,” said junior Lanyia Cooper. “It’s to get them on track and help them plan. It’s kind of like a family. We’re encouraging each other and helping each other out.”
