Women of AT&T Arizona Chapter hosted JAG students on October 23, 2019. The students and the Women of AT&T toured the AT&T Mesa Campus where they learned about AT&T careers, participated in a Texting and Driving demonstration and heard from a panel about Diversity in the Workplace.
Jobs for Arizona’s Graduates runs 30 programs throughout the state, and has served nearly 40,000 students in Arizona since 1980. JAG identifies youth who need additional support to help them graduate from high school and build a pathway to meaningful careers.
JAG students work toward mastering those competencies by participating in activities under their JAG program’s “Program of Work,” which consists of goals for the year that cover the following areas: leadership development, social activities, civic awareness, career development, and community service. Activities range from creating resumes and public speaking to carrying out food, blood and voter registration drives.
While JAG students become career ready they also gain a sense of belonging, both at school and in their communities.
Locally, JAG works with employers like APS, AT&T, Honeywell, SRP and Fry’s Food Stores, and partners with education and supportive resources, helping youth statewide overcome challenges and maximize their successes pursuing education, gaining valuable work experience, and excelling in meaningful careers.
