Alumni Spotlight

JMG gave me an idea of what my future could be. JMG made me realize that you can brighten other people's futures when you give back. I love helping people and JMG is one of the main reasons why I plan to start a nonprofit organization of my own.

Three Alumni Attended

JAG NSLA in Washington D.C.

This December, three Alumni Network members were selected from the state of Michigan to attend Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG)'s National Student Leadership Academy (NSLA) in Washington D.C. The NSLA is a capstone leadership experience for youth leaders providing unique experiences through experiential learning, real-world applicability, and networking.

Nolan Henson was also one of five alumni chosen to speak during an employer engagement alumni panel during JAG’s NSLA opening lunch. Nolan gave fantastic advice to youth about how to get noticed in the job market and excel in their chosen career path.

Nolan also had the honor of speaking at the 40th Anniversary JAG Gala and was invited to attend the JAG National Board meeting.

JMG impacted my life in a HUGE way. With my specialist’s help I not only made it to graduation, but I graduated with honors. I’m excited to join the alumni network to be able to network with other alumni, and to further my relationship with Youth Solutions and JMG.

Natasha was one of our JMG program youth, and is now a Youth Solutions Intern, who spoke to our leadership team directly about the need for an Alumni Network.
