For me, it started with a visit to Michigan Works! I walked in feeling like I had no other options, and they changed that for me. They offered me direction in a sea of paths. They offered me a sense of ability and reminded me of my worth in a tumultuous time.

One of the best things I learned in JMG was how to navigate college. If it wasn't for JMG I would not know how to navigate enrollment, financial aid, classes, and course scheduling.

A day in the life of a JMG student can vary a lot because JMG students are always trying to make the most out of every opportunity they are given. That may mean exceeding in their college classes, doing their best to help the community, or even just being that person who puts you in a good mood. What ever a JMG student does, they do it well because they know how important their opportunities are.

This course has been a salvation for me. Every school should have this program because it teaches you things you need in life. To any young adult considering joining JMG I would say do it and don’t hesitate...there is no better teacher than the one I have. This program screams success.

JMG means many things, not only has it helped me get to where I am today career wise and figure out what I want to do in the future.
