Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) is proud to honor excellence in youth development with the prestigious 6-of-6 Award. This accolade recognizes the highest-achieving states, regions, and programs within the JAG National Network, setting a standard of exceptional performance in guiding high school seniors toward successful futures.

The 6-of-6 Award underscores JAG’s commitment to measurable outcomes that matter most to young graduates. It evaluates performance across six critical metrics: on-time high school graduation, employment rate, full-time employment, total full-time positive outcomes, further education rate, and connectivity rate. These metrics reflect a comprehensive approach to ensuring that JAG participants not only graduate but also thrive in their post-graduation endeavors.

For a program to earn this esteemed recognition, it must exceed rigorous benchmarks in each category, demonstrating significant impact and effectiveness in preparing students for the next phase of their lives. The Follow-Up phase, a hallmark of JAG’s methodology, plays a pivotal role in this success, providing crucial support to graduates during the critical first year after high school.

This year, 72 JAG programs from across the United States have achieved the 6-of-6 Award, highlighting their dedication to fostering academic achievement, career readiness, and lifelong success among youth. These programs serve as models of excellence, embodying the JAG mission to equip every student with the skills and support needed to achieve their full potential.

The impact of the 6-of-6 Award extends far beyond recognition. It signifies a commitment to nurturing future leaders, empowering them with the tools and confidence to thrive in an ever-changing world. By celebrating these achievements, JAG honors the hard work of its participants and educators who continue to strive for excellence in youth development.

As we gather at the National Training Seminar in Las Vegas to celebrate these outstanding accomplishments, we applaud the dedication and perseverance of each award recipient. Together, we continue to shape a brighter future for young graduates across America, ensuring they are equipped to succeed in education, careers, and life.

Join us in congratulating the recipients of the JAG National 6-of-6 Award for their remarkable achievements and commitment to transforming lives.
