after graduation.
JAG's competency-based curriculum

development, job attainment and retention,
leadership, financial literacy and
numerous other life skills, all of which

Educational Talent Search

This program identifies and assists individuals who have the potential
to succeed in higher education. The program provides academic,
career, and financial counseling to its participants, and encourages
them to graduate from high school and continue on to the
postsecondary institution of their choice. ETS is one of eight Federal
TRiO Programs funded by the US Department of Education. Some ETS
Programs serve high school dropouts by encouraging them to reenter
the education system and complete their education. The goal of Talent
Search is to increase the number of youths who complete high school
and enroll in postsecondary education institutions of their choice.

Key Club/Leo Club

Since the beginning in 1925,
Key Club International has
supported the transformation
of high school students as they
graduate and become the
world's next class of leaders.
Club is a student-led, high
school organization. Our
members make the world a
better place through service.
In doing so, we grow as
individuals and as leaders by
answering the call to lead,
summoning the courage to
engage and developing the
heart to serve.

“Leadership, Experience,
Opportunity.” That’s what
makes a Leo. Members of Leo
clubs embody the best
qualities of our incredible
organization. They are devoted
young people who realize the
power of action. Together, Leos
and Lions form a powerful
partnership — one of mutual
respect where Lions learn from
the innovative insights of Leos,
and where Leos gain access to
the proven strategies of those
who’ve successfully served the
world for decades.
