The primary focus of the JET program is to assist participants with their movement toward financial independence. This is accomplished through actual employment, life-skills instruction, training/education, and/or other employment related activities.
Success in the JET program requires participation in assigned activities. These activities will provide practical application of job search techniques, as well as valuable information that will enhance your job search.
The Department of Human Services (DHS) requires your participation to remain eligible for cash assistance. You are expected to complete all assigned activities and meet all program requirements.
