Jobs for America’s Graduates-Missouri (JAG-Missouri) provides classroom and work opportunities for at-risk youth. Representative Peggy McGaugh says she’s pleased to see an increase in funding for the JAG-Missouri program.
The 39th district that McGaugh represents includes portions of Carroll, Chariton, and Ray counties. The national JAG program is a 40-year old non-profit group. It currently serves 1,760 communities across 40 states. McGaugh says the program has created a positive impact throughout the country.
JAG-Missouri recently reported over $100,000 in funding contributions. Governor Mike Parson and First Lady Teresa Parson currently serve as co-chairs of the JAG-Missouri Board of Directors. Governor Parson also serves on the JAG National Board of Directors.
