JA COLLEGE & CAREER PROGRAMS
Removing barriers and enabling students with the skills and knowledge needed to explore, choose, and advance in their future career path
In an ever-changing economy and job market, students need to gain a better understanding of the career opportunities that exist and how to obtain them. Using experiential curriculum and a network of industry mentors, JA Dallas allows students of all learning styles to thrive and learn important life lessons. This, in turn, reinforces the value of staying in school and drives rising high school and college graduation rates in our community.
Corporations, business professionals, entrepreneurs, and innovative thinkers from a variety of industries join our powerful career readiness experiences to give real-life insight to navigating the workforce.
Career Readiness Programs
Available for all ages/grade levels
JA Career Day Events engage JA volunteers with local schools to share their professional journey with students. Students learn about a range of career options across multiple career clusters, identify the variety of careers people have in the community, relate the impact of personal interests and abilities on career choices, understand education preparation, training, and personal qualities needed for a variety of careers, and examine how school skills apply to career paths.
JA CAREER DAYS program details:
- Up to 5 hours event on-site at school location
