Upcoming JAGS Events
“U.S. high school graduates will: Sell to the world; buy from the world; work for international companies; manage employees from other cultures and countries; collaborate with people all over the world in joint ventures; compete with people on the other side of the world for jobs and markets; and tackle global problems, such as AIDS, avian flu, pollution, and disaster recovery… We need to open global gateways and inspire students to explore beyond their national borders.”
Vivien Stewart, Becoming Citizens of the World, Educational Leadership
PLEASE CONSIDER BEING A HOST FAMILY THIS SCHOOL YEAR!
We are working to find a permanent host family who would enjoy having a happy, active teenager living with them for the school year.
Jonas is a 16 year student from Berlin, who loves sports, like water polo, kayaking, rock climbing, and he plays the piano. He is a good student (3.6 GPA) who likes math, science, and computer science. He is enthusiastic about being part of an American family and attending high school. Jonas needs a host family who would provide a bed, three meals a day, and a loving environment. For further information contact Dawn Wood at 330-904-5014. More information about hosting can be found at the CIEE website. See below.

Interdisciplinary problem-based learning, Cultural awareness, World language immersion, Community collaboration, Service learning, Leadership opportunities, Business partnerships, Educationally based travel
Upon completion of the program, JAGS students will possess the skills necessary to lead, cultivate and communicate their own ideas, excel in their chosen career paths, and work collaboratively to successfully navigate our global society.
