JMG Students Explore the World of Energy at the Downeast Energy Career Day

Downeast Energy introduced 24 Jobs for Maine’s Graduates students to the energy industry at their headquarters in Brunswick on Thursday, October 28.  Students from the Long Creek Youth Development Center in South Portland and students from LearningWorks/ Youth Building Alternatives in Portland participated in this Career Day as part of JMG’s job readiness program that prepares students for meaningful careers.

Not only has Downeast Energy pledged $12,500 in financial support to JMG over the last three years, but the company has also consistently enhanced its relationship with JMG by having employees interact directly with JMG students.

Interaction with Maine employers is critical to the experience-based JMG curriculum.
