JOBS FOR AMERICAâ€™S GRADUATES & AT&T TEAM UP WITH
GOV. PHIL BRYANT TO HELP MISSISSIPPI STUDENTS SUCCEED
Support will help JAG reach more youth at risk of dropping out
JACKSON, MS, January 31, 2014 â€”Gov. Phil Bryant joined officials from Jobs for Americaâ€™s Graduates and AT&T* Mississippi to highlight the importance of education and workforce development for Mississippiâ€™s economic future.
Jobs for Americaâ€™s Graduates (JAG) and AT&T are working together to help raise the high school graduation rate in Mississippi by expanding mentoring, tutoring and other academic support for students at risk of dropping out of high school. Jobs for Mississippi Graduates received $30,000 in funding as part of a $1 million contribution from AT&T to allow the national non-profit to add new schools and/or expand existing programs with proven records of success in keeping kids in school.
â€śToday, Mississippi is experiencing the strongest growth in our economy since 1999, our unemployment rate continues to fall and our GDP has reached $100 billion for the first time in state history,â€?said Gov. Phil Bryant. â€śBy continuing to focus on education and workforce development, we can make Mississippiâ€™s future even stronger.â€?â€śA robust education system is central to the future of our state,â€?said Mayo Flynt, president, AT&T Mississippi. â€śBy focusing on programs with proven results, we can have a measurable impact on the students that need it most and help us to meet our goal of improving graduation rates and building a strong workforce here in Mississippi.â€?/p>
JAG programs help underserved students overcome barriers to graduation through mentoring, tutoring, academic support and links to social services among other interventions. With a high school diploma or General Educational Diploma, students are guided into post-secondary education, entry-level careers or the military.
