JOBS FOR AMERICA’S GRADUATES

Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) is a state-based, national non-profit organization dedicated to preventing young people most at-risk from becoming dropouts. JAG students receive mentoring while in high school and one year of follow-up guidance after graduation.

In northeast Indiana, JAG is funded and overseen by Northeast Indiana Works. Brightpoint provides the JAG services at 15 high schools in Allen, DeKalb, Grant, Huntington, Noble and Wabash counties.

 

BE SOMEONE NOW

Be SomeOne Now is a program for qualified young people ages 16 to 24 that provides career development, including assistance obtaining high school equivalency, going to college, and developing the skills needed for employment. Northeast Indiana Works oversees and funds the program. Stop Child Abuse & Neglect (SCAN) provides Be SomeOne Now programming in the 11 counties served by Northeast Indiana Works.

 

I cannot explain enough how much Northeast Indiana Works’ Skill-Link classes in industrial maintenance have helped me in my career. They have allowed me to steadily grow in my career and I have now moved into the supervisory ranks. I intend to keep working hard and moving forward with Key Fasteners Corp.
