Northview High School's Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG) program recently raised $340 for victims of the Haiti earthquake.

JAG students worked in teams to raise money from their fellow students and school faculty.

All of the money collected was donated to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund. The donations will go to purchase food, water and clothing while helping with the rebuilding efforts.

"I liked fulfilling other people's needs and enjoyed working with the entire school to help those in need," April Knox said.

JAG students from across the state took part in raising money for the earthquake victims. Northview's JAG program had the second-highest donation total.

JAG is a school-to-career program that works to keep youth in school through graduation and prepares them for the workforce. The program provides work-based learning experiences that lead to career advancement opportunities or enrollment in post-secondary education.

Students who participate receive additional classroom instruction, adult mentoring, guidance and counseling, leadership development, employability skills training, job/internship and post-secondary educational placement services, connections to school and community-based services and 12-month follow-up services.
