  3. What is JMG?
    JMG is a class taught in high schools and middle schools throughout Montana, providing needed credit toward graduation and can satisfy the CTE credit required by the Office of Public Instruction. Students are empowered by the Career Specialist (teacher) to take the lead on planning projects centered on civic responsibility, leadership, social interaction, academic performance and professionalism. JMG students collectively decide how projects, class assignments and community engagement activities are carried out by electing a governing body, assigning leadership roles, then holding each other accountable.
  4. How does JMG help students?
    JMG is for every student. Some barriers to success are observable; others are hidden. JMG seeks to connect with students who have barriers to success and empower them to take charge and remove those barriers, graduate high school, and become productive citizens of Montana and the nation. JMG helps build students confidence and gain skills to learn how to work together as a team, volunteer in the community and explore options for their future. JMG allows students to experience success and cope with failures in a positive manner (learn from their mistakes). We also help students with successful transitions from middle school to high school and from high school to life: preparing students for graduation as well as being ready to enter their first job or follow on education. JMG has the tools and resources to assist students with post-secondary education, training programs, or entry into the military and other service organizations.
