Academy Highlights

JAG stands for Jobs for America's Graduates and it's a new program at LFLA. Our JAG Specialist is Tim Basler and he's teaching more than 40 juniors and seniors about career options after high school graduation. Students take field trips to Ranken Tech to learn about different trades; meetings with Building Union Diversity (BUD), a program that connects people to construction jobs; the YMCA to learn more about jobs in the nonprofit sector including free swimming lessons to immediately become lifeguards; a team-building trip to the zoo, and much more.

Tim will also be working with students to help them develop strong resumes and the skills needed to pursue employment. In the video below, he gives you an overview of JAG and what it will do for our students.
