It is simply impossible to measure all of the positive outcomes that come about when a young adult discovers their unique talents and gains the confidence and self-assurednes to succeed in school, pursue a personally rewarding career, and become a vital contributor in society.
The positive performance outcomes reflect these goals and achievement of the “5 of 5” award year after year. For more than a decade NH-JAG has met or exceeded the 5 performance goals measured by the national JAG organization. After 12 full months of follow-up ending in May 2018, the results for the class of 2017 are the highest ever achieved!
RESULTS FOR THE NH-JAG CLASS OF 2017
Graduation Rate 90% 100%
Positive Outcomes Rate 80% 92%
Employment Rate 60% 81%
Full-Time Jobs Rate 60% 87%
Full-Time Placement Rate 80% 97%
This level of success is no accident and is instead, the result of the following core components:
NH-JAG depends on the proactive involvement of New Hampshire’s private sector in a variety of ways including serving on the board and in advisory capacities; volunteering as classroom presenters and competitive event judges; contributing as event sponsors and other donations; and in providing valuable career opportunities for program participants.
The primary focus of NH-JAG is to empower young adults to discover their gifts and to capitalize on their talents. Through this process, each individual may grow to become valuable citizens and productive contributors to the social and economic framework that makes New Hampshire a great place to live, work and raise a family.
NH-JAG board and staff are held personally accountable for the academic and career success of graduates.
NH-JAG is cost-effective at an average expense of under $2,000 per program participant. This investment is more than returned in taxes alone over a 14 to 18 month period when graduates of the program engage in full time employment.
