Since 1987, Jobs for Ohio’s Graduates (JOG), an affiliate of the nationwide Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) organization, has helped youth with multiple barriers to success complete their education and successfully transition to employment at a livable wage or post-secondary job training. These services are set to continue in an even bigger location.
Our very own Rachael Jolly-Kosakowski was featured in and on the cover of Joy of Medina County!
Our very own Gina Peplow recently became a Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) National Trainer! Gina had a desire to be more invested in the JAG community and offer her knowledge and expertise to those coming behind her.
Passion joined JOG in the Spring of 2019. She was shy but held high expectations for her future. In order to succeed, she knew that she needed to become more assertive and determined.
Carter started working at Trilogy Plastics on April 27, 2021. As of June 1st he received a promotion and wage increase! In a little over one month, Carter has moved from an entry-level employee to a Molding Trainee and is making $16 an hour at 40 hours per week.
We are excited to FINALLY open our new space up to participants, colleagues and family members! This month, in conjunction with Summit County Job and Family Services, over 200 participants received BRAND NEW Chromebooks so they are able to participate in our virtual education program this summer.
The last week of May is always a very busy time for JOG that is filled with joy and tears as we congratulate and say goodbye to the Class of 2021.
