  • iJAG – Iowa Jobs for America’s Graduates

    High School Model: Davenport’s Central, Mid City, North, and West High Schools all have active iJAG programs.  The ultimate objective of an iJAG program is to provide participants with classroom and work-based learning experiences that result in a quality job, leading to a career after graduation or completion of a GED. iJAG provides an effective strategy to strengthen education systems by serving youth needing additional assistance in completing a secondary education, pursuing post-secondary education or training, and/or entering the workforce in a quality job leading to a career.  State administrators and Iowa businesses have taken a leadership role in implementing this program to provide Iowa educators and communities a viable solution to high dropout rates, low academic performance, youth unemployment and the increased demand for quality employees.  iJAG has proven to be a cost-effective and successful program by increasing:

    • Graduation Rates
    • Academic Performance
    • Attendance
    • Job Placement
    • Continued Education/Training
