The JAG Advantage

Employer Engagement:

Employers interact with JAG students in the classroom and on-the job.

Project-Based Learning:

Education specialists deliver instruction through projects.

Trauma-Informed Care:

We ask the student what happened instead of what’s wrong with you.

 

 



We’re working to expand JAG-SC to 100 school sites across the state. To find out more about JAG-SC and how you can participate, contact our State Coordinator Elaine Midkiff or (803) 896-9425.
