JMG and SCTC Programs

Jobs for Maine’s Graduates (JMG)

Jobs for Maine’s Graduates (JMG) was created for high school seniors as a school-to-work program. JMG has evolved into an organization serving more than 5,000 students per year in more than 85 school-based sites. Through JMG programs, high-school and middle-school students discover their individual talents, develop skills, and seize opportunities to achieve their personal potential. JMG at MCI offers a venue for students to interact with employers, community-based organizations, and post high school opportunities. The JMG program teaches more than 37 core competencies comprised of six skill sets: personal skills, leadership skills, communication skills, job attainment skills, job success skills, and career development skills. JMG is successfully preparing Maine’s young people to be responsible and productive employees, customers, and citizens. MCI offers JMG for grades 9-12. The JMG teacher will interview every student before acceptance to the program. (1 credit)
