Increase Graduation Rates at Your School

It takes a special public and private partnership working together to help provide Jobs for Alabama’s Graduates. The approximate cost to provide a healthy and vibrant JAG program is $75,000 per year and can serve up to 35-45 of our most overlooked and vulnerable high school students.

Launching a JAG program provides Alabama students with the opportunity to spend at least 180 hours per year with a dedicated JAG education professional who is uniquely qualified to help students overcome the barriers to graduation and ultimately a fulfilling and productive life. All JAG programs include classroom instruction, community-based activities, career association activities, individual and group counseling, remediation, follow-up services, job development, and job placement. JAG Specialists work year round with students including Summer Services

Alabama JAG serves students in 27 campuses across the state and our goal is to double our impact to over 50 programs in the near future. It takes dedicated public and private partners to launch a JAG program. If you are dedicated to helping all Alabama students graduate and succeed in life, we would love to strategize and work together to build more JAG programs.
