What is JA Inspire Virtual?

JA Inspire Virtual is a one-of-a-kind college, career and trades exploration event for middle and high school students. Hundreds of local businesses from across the area, will be ready to show students what a day in the life of someone with their job looks like, how students can get that job, and what students need to do to be successful in that job.

JA Inspire Virtual will also feature colleges, universities, apprenticeship programs, trade schools and internships, so once a student is "inspired" they can gather the information they need to achieve their goals.

Why JA Inspire Virtual?

Not all students receive career mentorship at home. In other cases, career exploration happens too late in a child's school career and, by the time they've decided on a career path, class choices can cause their career goals to be unrealistic. JA Inspire Virtual offers middle and high school students the opportunity to learn about careers from caring mentors, in time to plan their high school coursework. For high school students, JA Inspire Virtual will show students the vast array of jobs available and how to get and keep those jobs.

Event Highlights:

  • Online self-guided or teacher-led pre/post-event curriculum
  • Exhibitors from local businesses, colleges, and trade industries
  • Live webinars on soft skills, college, trades & apprenticeships, entrepreneurship and financial literacy
  • Student Virtual Swag Bags to store career information and videos
  • Digital Career Guidebook
  • Gamification to increase student engagement, including leaderboard, scavenger hunt and prizes!
  • Extended 24/7 access for 90 days for students and parents
