“The 76,000 students that JAG serves across 40 states have been hit the hardest – and likely will be impacted for the longest – by this COVID pandemic. Many were experiencing significant barriers before the crisis hit, including poverty, homelessness, trauma, food-insecurity, and more, and now those scenarios are even more acute, given the loss of jobs and income many are facing,” said Ken Smith, President of Jobs for America’s Graduates.

“The JAG National Network of quickly transitioned to virtual services, offering remote learning and support when schools closed. JAG Specialists (teachers) are engaging regularly with students across the country, ensuring that their basic needs are met and that they’re continuing to pursue positive career pathways.”

“Ensuring that employees have access to timely and high-quality resources during a period of challenge and change is absolutely critical,” said Sean Sullivan, SHRM Chief Human Resources Officer. “At a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a major psychological and economic toll on Americans, HR professionals serve as the backbone of our country’s workplaces—working around the clock to provide support to employees and their families.”
As businesses and schools continue to adapt in response to COVID-19, JAG, their state-based Affiliates, and dedicated JAG Specialists continue to provide ongoing services to 76,000 youth across the country so they are prepared for the competitive job market following graduation. Ensuring that JAG Affiliates, staff and Specialist have access to timely and high-quality resources during such a difficult time is a top priority.
