ISABELLE WEST

When her plans to attend her university of choice fell through, 2017 J4NG graduate Isabelle West applied for the Tesla Manufacturing Development Program at the Sparks Gigafactory. There, she enjoyed an excellent starting salary, benefits, and stock options. It also gave Isabelle an intensive, paid apprenticeship. Today, Isabelle plans to continue her journey at Tesla, and advance her knowledge in robotics and automation. She also serves as a peer mentor for J4NG students following in her footsteps.

J4NG = Balance

Hear one students thoughts about the J4NG program.

Low Cost, High Impact, and 4 Decades of Results.

Jobs for America’s Graduates works. Nationally, Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) students have achieved 90% plus graduation rates in 39 states for over 40 years. In Nevada, 96% of J4NG students graduate from high school. This is remarkable as students were identified when their grades dropped, attendance declined or they ran into disciplinary problems. Each and every J4NG student that graduates is a big win because their success was previously in peril.

J4NG is the gateway to career pathways too, and 93% of 2019 graduates found themselves working full-time, going to college full-time or combining both for a full-time endeavor. At a cost under $1,400 per student per year, J4NG delivers the highest outcomes by providing students with a minimum of 120 contact hours per student per year.
