Jobs for Tennessee Graduates (JTG) is a program that provides students the opportunity to develop skills critical to success in everyday life, school, and on the job. The curriculum includes occupation information, goal setting, study skills, human relations, and leadership development. The need for assuming responsibility for one’s actions and decisions is emphasized. This course is based on a national model to assist students in graduating from high school and gaining employment or further education after graduation. Students learn career development and job attainment competencies and develop skills that employers believe are fundamental to success on the job. Follow-up and employment services are continued for 12 months following graduation.
