Iowa Jobs for American Graduates (iJAG)
The Iowa Jobs for American Graduates (iJAG) programs, available at City, Liberty, and West High schools, help support students in discovering career paths, contributing to community service projects, and learning important leadership skills. The goal of iJAG is to help our young leaders find their passion and purpose, and then connect them with the resources they need to live it.
Available to anyone, iJAG serves as a welcoming space for students, regardless of background. Students who are interested in joining iJAG can reach out to their school counselor.
