JAG-K operates in 73 Kansas schools that are divided into four regions. Regional Managers provide program support to Career Specialists and students in their regions. The 2022-23 school year will start with 104 programs across the state in 46 school districts.
JAG-K also has a program specifically for Kansas students who are unstably housed. In partnership with the Kansas Department for Children and Families, the Kansas Department of Education, and the Kansas Department of Corrections, JAG-K implemented a multi-phase pilot project to help increase successful outcomes for our Kansas students in transitory situations, including system-involved youth (foster care, incarcerated) and the homeless. The evidence-based JAG model is the foundation for helping these students prepare for successful futures during a challenging time in their lives.
The JAG-K Transition Services Career Specialist is responsible for advocating for the student, keeping track of their progress toward graduation, and providing necessary support to ensure that the student succeeds in their academic courses as well as attaining life skills and mastering core JAG career and leadership development competencies.
