December 19, 2023
Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates (JMG) students in the Auto Repair program at the North Ed Career Tech Center in Traverse City were formally recognized for being part of the JMG program at a Launch Ceremony December 15 at the Tech Center. State Representatives Betsy Coffia and John Roth, and Steve Yoder from the office of State Senator John Damoose attended the ceremony and met with the students. JMG students Aby Kowalske, Carson Haskin, and Riley Brown each spoke at the event about attending the Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG) National Student Leadership Academy held in early December in Washington, D.C. All of the Career Tech JMG students also received certificates of participation and JMG sweatshirts.
Networks Northwest and Northwest Michigan Works! are proud to partner with Jobs for Michigan's Graduates and North Ed Career Tech to offer the JMG program that equips young people with the skills to overcome barriers and win in education, employment, and in life. In addition to the program at the North Ed Career Tech Center, Northwest Michigan Works! also coordinates JMG programs at nearly 20 other schools in northwest Lower Michigan.
