Natchitoches Junior High JAG students complete Independent Living Module

Natchitoches Jr. High JAG students were in “mock mode” while working within their Independent Living Module. Amongst other things, The Independent Living module covers: resources to/for job application, how to construct a letter of application & resume’, budgets, and banking.

They have applied for and been interviewed for a job. They’ve learned how to manage a monthly budget, apply for housing (within said budget), sign a lease agreement, pay a security deposit and monthly rent.

  1. We need more of this for our young people. What a great way to teach relevant life skills that are overlooked or missed due to varying homme dynamics!
