“JMG helps students see themselves, others and the community in a different light. Students build confidence and gain skills that will last them a lifetime. By determining the direction of the class, learning to work together as a team, volunteering in the community, and exploring options for their future, students find themselves completely engaged. JMG benefits all staff and students as JMG students provide a strong leadership role within the school. The class provides an opportunity for students to experience a class that truly makes a difference-today and tomorrow.” - Mrs. Yenta Jaques, JMG Career Specialist (Read more about Mrs. Jaques)
