LAS VEGAS — Jobs for Nevada’s Graduates (JAG Nevada), a nonprofit agency that partners with public education and private agencies to develop high school students into the talent employers want to hire using education and skills training, is helping its students make a stellar first impression in front of prospective employers by seeking donations for the third annual JAG Nevada Career Clothing Drive.
The drive will kick off on Giving Tuesday, November 27, and run until January 31, 2019.
