Local JET Participants Explore Educational Opportunities at LaTech, Grambling

The JET participants took off to explore local education opportunities after finishing their first week of work. They toured Louisiana Tech University, received a personal tour of Grambling State Univeristy by our very own Ja’Deric, and visited the great Edddie Robison Museum.

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 earn income while being 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
  • Budgeting
  • On-the-Job Etiquette
  • Personal Branding
