JMG Students and Potential Careers in Corrections

On October 30, 2019, Michigan Works! staff member Amy from Schoolcraft County coordinated a presentation from Luce and Alger Correctional Facilities with Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates (JMG) students.

Jobs for Michigan’s Graduates is a program focused on dropout aversion for young individuals.

During this presentation, students were educated about what it’s like to be a Corrections Officer, the compensation that you would receive as a Corrections Officer, and what it takes to become one.

The students, after the presentation, showed excitement and enthusiasm in regards to the possibility of working in prisons once they graduate. They asked constructive questions that led to informative discussions.

Michigan Works! UPward Talent Council strives to provide these types of connections to young people, those early in their careers, and the seasoned worker. Stop into an American Job Center for more information about a new career!
