The annual Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) professional development conference will be held virtually this year, July 14-16.

This event offers attendees the opportunity to gain inspiration, sharpen skill sets and create stronger professional networks with education leaders across the nation while building knowledge around best practices in serving vulnerable youth populations. The non-profit Youth Solutions, Inc. and its Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates (JMG)  programming is offering attendance at the virtual training at NO COST to any interested attendee. As an education leader with an interest in ensuring young people graduate from high school and succeed in postsecondary education and employment, we invite you to extend the invitation to anyone in your network who may benefit from this once-a-year opportunity.

Click here for a full list of the sessions.  For ease of reading, the first half divides the session by roles and tenure in the organization (for Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates – specific staff members). For those who are not currently part of the JMG network, look at the A la Carte, series D, and Outside Partner, series E, tracks. Alternatively, the second part of the spreadsheet divides out the sessions by content area and select tracks for Employers and Legislative audiences.
