Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG) is a state-based national non-profit organization dedicated to preventing dropouts among young people who are most at-risk. In more than three decades of operation, JAG has helped more than one million young people across the nation stay in school through graduation, pursue post-secondary education and secure quality entry-level jobs leading to career advancement opportunities.

JAG-SC is a program run by DEW and is a proven dropout prevention program assisting some of the state's most deserving youth in graduating from high school and moving confidently toward the realization of their dreams. For eight consecutive years, the program has been awarded the National JAG "5-of-5" Award for exceeding all five of the national standards for graduation rate, school placement rates, total positive outcomes rates, job placement rates, and full-time jobs rates.
