What is JA Inspire?
JA Inspire is a coalition of educators and industry leaders, led by Junior Achievement. At the center of our work is a powerful, massive virtual career exploration event that will be measured in student engagement and impact.
- The event will feature a showcase of careers held at over 80 local businesses, non-profits, government agencies, and educational organizations.
- Exhibits will include interactive virtual career stations with mentors who will share their career advice with the students
Why JA Inspire?
- Satisfy state career exploration and pathway requirements for students by providing them an incredible virtual experience that is either self-guided or teacher facilitated.
- Increase student knowledge of career pathways and pre-requirements needed for future success. Use this information to support participation in special programs, career technical education and after school initiatives.
- Increase parental knowledge of career pathways.
- Inspire and prepare the next generation for future success in Dallas-Fort Worth companies, colleges and training programs.
- Reduce the exodus of the best & brightest Texas youth to relocating to companies and careers outside of this great state.
