“JAG has made me realize the definition of hard work. It’s made me realize that when you put 100% effort into everything you do, good outcomes will come…JAG is what unlocked that special part of my brain and made me realize that good things aren’t going to just come to me. If I want to pursue a successful future, the beginning of that road starts now.”
“I will be the first one to graduate high school and go to college. [JAG] helped me through a lot of things, like helping me to find a job. It’s helped me get better grades and better myself.”
“As a small firm with limited financial resources to devote toward CSR efforts, we hope our [JAG] initiative will demonstrate that it’s entirely possible to effect considerable change when the investment is primarily time and personal commitment. An abundance of industry expertise and a sincere passion and desire to make a positive impact is all that’s needed.”
