Our Programs

JAG-K operates in 63 Kansas schools that are divided into four regions. Regional Managers provide program support to Career Specialists and students in their regions. The 2020-21 school year will start with 78 programs across the state in 43 school districts. JAG-K also has a program specifically for Kansas students in foster care. The traditional JAG-K programming and transition services programming are primarily funded through a federal grant from the Kansas Department for Children and Families.

Transition Services

JAG-K, in partnership with the Kansas Department for Children and Families and the Kansas Department of Education, implemented a multi-phase pilot project to help increase successful outcomes for our Kansas students in foster care.

The JAG-K Transition Services Team has Career Specialists assigned to support students in foster care that cannot be part of the traditional JAG-K program. 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.

JAG-K gives people a purpose and helps with what students want to do or become in the future. It is just one of those stepping stones that sets you up for success in the end game - the program that will set me up for greatness.

JAG-K has made it easier for me to speak in front of people and be myself. They have also helped me think about career paths and motivated me to become more involved in my community.

I do not know where I would be without JAG-K. They have helped me plan out my future and always believed in myself even when I did not.
