2018 JAG Thought Leader Event Live Stream

Jobs for America's Graduates' 12th annual National Thought Leader Event is doing to be held at Gallup Headquarters in Washington, DC, October 29th from 8:00 AM to 2:30 PM. Governor Eric Holcomb, Chair of the JAG Board of Directors will be hosting this event that will be on creating Big Solutions for Big Problems.

For the first time in history, there are more jobs than there are workers to fill them. Therefore, this year’s Thought Leader Event will focus on two driving questions as we consider recommendations to address this issue:

GATE College System

JAG and GATE both believe that every student deserves to be confident and competent when it comes to building pathways to post-graduation success.

Now it's your turn to bring this important solution to busy students needing a little help. With GATE, you can ensure all students in need of a little extra help aspire.

Confidence comes from motivation and inspiration. Competence comes from information and preparation.
