Another graduation season means another batch of students celebrating their accomplishments, and we at JEVS couldn’t be prouder.
For some, graduation means completing a high school education by earning a GED or through the Penn Foster program. For others it means finishing a training program or receiving a certification that will allow them to enter the workforce with confidence. For all JEVS program graduates, it means opportunity.
Though graduates come from a wide variety of JEVS programs (see below for a breakdown), they all have one thing in common: they are that much closer to achieving their potential. We at JEVS wish them success in all of their endeavors, now and in the future.
