Dawson County High School students and members of Jobs for Georgia Graduates (JGG), Alondra Zavala and Ava Walker visited Johnson High School last week to celebrate the launch of the program at Johnson. JGG is a youth development program that was designed to help students overcome obstacles as well as promote success rates in education, graduation and meaningful employment. The Georgia Department of Labor, the University of North Georgia and Hall County Schools partnered to launch a three-year pilot program at the Gainesville school with hopes of expanding throughout northeast Georgia.
