Helping JAG-K students overcome barriers to success requires year-round commitment. Summer, therefore, is no vacation for JAG-K career specialists.
Career specialists maintain their close connections to students during the summer to help them continue their development. They help their students with seasonal employment, educational enrichment, credit recovery and provide emotional support.
Summer presents life-changing opportunities to JAG-K students. Whether it’s through camps, job shadowing, work opportunities, etc., career specialists help students line up applications, interviews, enrollment or whatever else they need to obtain those experiences.
Throughout the summer, specialists find creative ways to help students stay connected and focused on their success. Whether it’s getting students together for a service project, sharing ice cream at a park, or meeting at a swimming pool, they make sure students feel supported.
Summer vacation is more than half over already. We're looking forward to another great school year! I hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer.
