JAG CT is pleased to be launching a program this fall at Windham Middle School!
Lead Specialist Emily Carver appeared recently on Windham Community Access TV to promote the program, with her student Savina Hollingsworth, who graduated last month from New Britain High School.
“JAG was different from any other class I’d ever experienced,” Savina said. “I felt like I mattered, like I was pursuing something for myself.
“Before, when I had a problem with a teacher I would ignore it,” she added. “After getting to know Ms. Carver, and seeing a teacher that cared, I was able to approach other teachers and talk about problems and work them out.”
Thanks to the United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut for its generous support for the Windham program. Dr. Martin Estey of the Hartford Consortium for Higher Education and Teresa Nieves of the United Way also appeared on the program, describing its model elements, such as 12 months of follow up and the student-led Career Association.
