Click-a-Day to Help Middle School Students

I teach 7th & 8th graders in a non-profit program called JAG (“Jobs for America’s Graduates”). JAG students learn social/emotional, organizational & study skills, as well as communication skills, health and wellness, and conflict resolution. We focus on the skills and dispositions helpful for success in school and careers. We use a student-centered approach that helps to develop leadership skills and good citizenship.

Our funding has run out & we have been entered into a grant contest from the Clorox company. The programs that receive the most votes will get funding.

There are two ways to vote: Visit the site by clicking on this picture, or text 2016pbf to 95248. Will texting work from outside the United States? I don’t know – let me know. The great news is that you can vote once per day until December 19, 2012. Please do!

Advantage to texting: You don’t have to register in order to vote.

Advantage to following this link & voting online: You don’t have to text.

This is really a terrific program. It encourages middle school students to stay connected to school, and helps them transition to high school. We include a follow-up program to support students in high school. Please help us to keep our commitment to these kids by voting for our program and encouraging others to do the same.

Please reblog this post.

Thank you!

UPDATE: Voting is over; we didn’t win the grant. Thanks for supporting our program and any program you support to make the world a better place.
