JA Inspire is more than a career fair, it brings together the business community and local schools and is designed to help launch middle school students into their futures: high school, college, and careers beyond. (Grades 6-8)
Just 5% of adults in the U.S. say that high school graduates are very prepared for success in the workplace and only 13% say the same about college graduates.
JA Inspire Virtual is a one-of-a-kind career exploration experience that helps over 10,000 middle and high school students plan for the future by connecting them to our state’s top industries and businesses. Students have the opportunity to explore high-wage and high-demand jobs in our region and learn critical work readiness skills to prepare them for the future.
