Staff development and community engagement are continuous goals as well as further developing the JAG Advantage across New Hampshire. In 2018, JAG introduced the JAG Advantage, which builds upon three core areas of the original JAG model:
• Project Based Learning builds valuable communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills.
• Trauma Informed Care helps youth that have faced trauma recognize their strengths and overcome adversity.
• Employer Engagement provides students with the skills and opportunities to advance in the workplace and be successful in their careers and in their lives.
The JAG Advantage is based on a promise that JAG will deliver learner-centered instruction to ensure youth achieve their fullest potential. In upholding this promise, JAG is developing the talent our nation needs to fuel the economy with new members of the workforce who are both prepared and resilient.
We look forward to hosting our 14th Annual Leadership Awards Breakfast, February 2020. NH-JAG believes that leadership is more than words. It’s action, and it’s important to recognize. That’s why NH-JAG hosts an annual Leadership Awards event to thank and honor statewide leaders empowering today’s youth, and in doing so, impacting the future. This event celebrates and honors key individuals and organizations that help make NH-JAG and, more importantly, its students successful. NH-JAG participates in NH Gives, an initiative of the NH Center for Nonprofits raising money and awareness for New Hampshire’s nonprofits through an online giving event in June.
There are many ways to help support the vision of NH-JAG to ensure New Hampshire’s youth are empowered to achieve their full potential. This includes donations via mail or phone, corporate sponsorships, matching gifts and event sponsorships. AmazonSmile — shoppers can support NH-JAG! Shop online at smile.amazon.com and Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to NH-JAG. Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program — NH-JAG will receive a $1 donation for every $2.50 Community Bag purchased at the Hannaford store at 201 John Devine Dr. in Manchester, NH for the month of October 2019.
Community and businesses leaders can offer their expertise or resources to support the NH-JAG program in their area. Share your industry knowledge by volunteering as a guest speaker in a NH-JAG classroom or provide learning opportunities to JAG students through company tours or job shadows. Community partners can also make an impact by partnering with a NH-JAG program on a local community service project.
