JAG-K Adds 23 New Programs for 2022-2023

JAG-K has put its name in the Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG) record books! By adding 23 new programs for the 2022-2023 school year, Kansas is the fastest state to reach 100 programs in the 40-year history of JAG. 

We accomplished this in less than 10 years of existence! This is a credit to the many education and policy leaders who understood the potential of JAG-K, those individuals and organizations that invested money in students, and the career specialists who put in the hard work to help our students prepare for successful futures.

We anticipate serving approximately 5,500 students in the 2022-2023 school year, an increase of about 1,200 students. JAG-K now has 104 programs in 48 school districts.

With growth comes challenges. We are excited to embrace those challenges with your help. Thank you for helping JAG-K and the students we serve. We are ready for another great school year!
