Hello my name is Price Tate, Senior Job Specialist for Greenbrier and Randolph counties and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the Jobs for West Virginia’s Graduates program at Greenbrier East High School. Greenbrier East High School has been a part of the Jobs for West Virginia‘s Graduates (JWVG) since the inception of the program in West Virginia. The program was established to assist youth in graduating from high school and thereafter to find and keep quality employment through a state supported school-to-work transition system. Jobs for West Virginia‘s Graduates strives to help students improve grades, attendance and attitude. The ultimate objective for JWVG is for a student to secure a quality job, and/or enroll in post-secondary education or training, and/or military recruitment after high school. Jobs for West Virginia’s Graduates is a part of the national program, Jobs for America’s Graduates and is considered by many to be one of the top programs of its kind in the nation. Additionally the program provides follow-up service, for current year graduating seniors, for one year after graduation, to help them with the transition from high school to work and/or continued higher education. A second part of the program includes job specialist contact with the local area businesses to provide information concerning the program and to request your support for this vital program in our area. Your support for this program will be greatly appreciated and while $1,000.00 is the stated goal it would be wonderful to exceed that amount.
