Jurors Empower Teens (JET) is a program started by the Bienville Parish Police Jury and LSU AgCenter. Since 2008 the program has gained a strong reputation among the community for its youth enrichment. During the 4-week program, youth 16 to 18 years-old are employed at various public and private businesses. Not only does the program provide a valuable first employment opportunity, but it also equips teens with practical skills:
- Goal Setting
- Resume Building
- Interview Skills
- On-The-Job Etiquette
- Personal Branding
Megan Martin and Kimberlyn Jones are the new agents that are excited to continue educating the youth of Bienville Parish. Applications are now being accepted. To be eligible, participants must be 16 to 18 years old (a junior or senior start of Fall 2021), transportation during program dates, and complete application with academic references.
