The JAG Advantage
The JAG Advantage is based on the promise that JAG will deliver student-centered programs to help young people achieve their fullest potential. The JAG Advantage has three components: Project-Based Learning, Trauma Informed Care, and Employer Engagement.
Project-Based Learning: The PBL Difference
Content knowledge and conceptual understanding by themselves are not enough in today's world. In school and college, the modern workplace, as citizens, and in their lives, people need to be able to think critically.
Project-Based Learning (PBL) teaches students the JAG Core Competencies through real-world applications. Each JAG-K Career Specialist (classroom instructor) is trained on the gold standard of PBL from the Buck Institute for Education. Through the projects, JAG-K students learn how to apply knowledge and use it to solve problems, answer complex questions, and create high-quality products.
" Project Based Learning prepares students for academic, personal, and career success, and readies young people to rise to the challenges of their lives and the world they will inherit. "
