WELCOME TO JVG
Our mission is to identify highschool students who face barriers to education, and to guide each one on to a successful path toward continued education, a meaningful career, and productive adulthood.
Our vision is to be a champion for all Virginia high school students facing barriers to education. We understand Virginia’s future will be a reflection of what we commit and contribute to our youth.
The overall impact of JVG is far reaching, moving beyond our classrooms – to shape the future of our students, schools, communities, emerging workforce, and all of Virginia.Click to learn more about JVG
