During the 39th Annual National Training Seminar (NTS) last week in Las Vegas, Nevada, 650 JAG Specialists, managers, trainers and administrators from across the United States came together to gain inspiration, deeper skill sets, and a more robust professional network.
This year’s theme was Game On: The Power of Winning Together. The JAG Model and the JAG Advantage brings a winning combination to our young people and give them the power to compete and win in today’s workforce. After five days of NTS, JAG Specialists, managers, and affiliate staff left with the knowledge, skills, and most importantly, actionable plans and toolkits to support JAG youth during the ‘22-’23 school year!
In addition, JAG celebrated and recognized our “5-of-5” State Affiliates, Outstanding Specialists, High Performers, and Peak Performers throughout the week.
The “5 of 5” State Award recognizes the highest-achieving states that exceed all five of Jobs for America’s Graduates National’s performance metrics aimed at graduation and employment. Performance metrics include employment rate, full-time employment, total full-time positive outcomes, and further education rate.5of5
