National Training Seminar

July 12-15, 2021 | Virtual

For more than 40 years, Jobs for America’s Graduates has delivered student-centered programs to help young people achieve their fullest potential while reaching economic and academic success. Despite the many challenges of 2020, the opportunity to review, revise, and refresh was a significant opportunity for JAG National.  This year we are heading “Back to Basics” focusing on the newly updated 10 JAG Model Components—the foundation of what makes JAG so special—and the impact each component has on our program applications for all of the participants we serve.

We encourage all JAG Specialists, managers, Administrators, leadership staff, and legislators to join us for this unique virtual opportunity.

  • New Specialist: Designed for newly hired Specialists with no experience in the JAG Classroom.  Participants will focus on understanding JAG model components and how to implement them in their program.

  • 1-4 Year Specialist: Designed for Specialists with one to four years of experience in the JAG Classroom. Participants will focus on sharing best practices and elevating the implementation of the model components in their programs.

  • 5+ Year Specialist: Designed for Specialists with at least five years of experience in the JAG Classroom. Participants will focus on innovation and growth through the implementation of the model components in their program

  • Management & Leadership: Designed for JAG managers, directors, and other leaders within the organization with at least one year of management or leadership experience.  Participants will focus on management best practices and supporting staff while implementing the JAG Model Components updates.

Registration will be based on the number of programs per state.  All specialists, program managers, administrators, and state staff can attend.  Individuals should contact their CSA Representatives for more information.

Registration deadline: June 15
