JAG Nevada: 4 Things to Know
1. JAG Seniors Prepare for Tesla Job Interview Trip on April 19

Dozens of JAG Seniors interested in launching a career at Tesla will travel to Gigafactory 1 on April 19, 2018. Following in the footsteps of 2017 seniors, JAG students will interview at Tesla, and if hired, move to the Reno/Sparks area. Many of the students who were hired last summer are still working there, receiving promotions/ reassignments, and are attending Truckee Meadows Community College to hone their skills in automation/ advanced manufacturing! JAG is committed to helping students find careers after graduation with companies that offer youth a future.

4. JAG Nevada and Washoe Signature Academies & CTE Enter Partnership
JAG Nevada teaches soft skills and social emotional learning skills. Washoe County School District Signature Academies & CTE teach technical skills. "By working with Dr. Dana Ryan and her team, we can graduate students who possess the soft and technical skills that employers are actively seeking in today's tight labor market" said Dr. Rene Cantu, Executive Director of JAG Nevada. "In the coming weeks and months, we will collaborate to enroll more CTE students who need JAG in a JAG program and more JAG students who wish to purse a CTE program to do so. This is a win--win in every way!"
