Staying Focused on the Goal

Last year, 99% of Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates participants returned to school – the highest in the Job’s for America’s Graduates (JAG) National Network. It’s because our specialists don’t do just one job, they work hard to fill many roles – teacher, guidance counselor, coach, and all-around cheerleader.

Because of JMG, I want to come to school every day, stay positive and keep it moving forward.
