Abused, Neglected, Rescued, Saved; How JAG-K Helped a Kansas Girl Reclaim Her Life

You may have never heard of the national program called JAG, or " Jobs for America's Graduates." The non-profit, school-based program is designed to help students succeed in life. First, by making sure they graduate and second, by helping them land a job. At least 39 states have a JAG program. The one in Kansas is called JAG-K. JAG-K students from across the state gathered at the Kansas Statehouse this month (FEB) to tell lawmakers how the program is improving their lives. KPR's J. Schafer reports on one of those students who claims JAG-K isn't just helping her succeed... it helped save her life.  

Caution: this report deals with mature subject matter and may not be appropriate for everyone.

The JAG-K program operates in Lawrence, Topeka, Kansas City, Wichita and dozens of other communities across the state. To learn more about the non-profit, school-based program, visit jagkansas.org
