The JA Inspire Experience is a coalition of educators and industry leaders, led by Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore. At the center of our work is a powerful event that will be massive, measured in both square feet and impact.
Hands-on Career Exploration
Almost 6,000 8th, 11th, and 12th-Grade Students from 7 counties across Maryland and Virginia's Eastern Shores (Accomack, Caroline, Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester)
Eastern Shore Colleges/Universities, Trade Schools, and Apprenticeship Programs
Eastern Shore Companies representing local high-wage/high-demand careers who will share career advice and engage students with interactive exhibits
Why JA Inspire?
Not all students receive career mentorship at home or have access to all the career options that are available to them. The JA Inspire Experience gives students that opportunity. Students get to learn about careers from caring mentors in time to plan their high school coursework, have a better path to success, and a pathway out of generational poverty. For businesses, this is your chance to build your future workforce through experiential and hands-on learning. You get to ensure that the skills you need in your employees are the skills taught to your future hires.
