JA Inspire Experience

Featuring: JA Inspire

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)

Event Completed!

When: Monday, March 22, 2021
Where: Virtual
Time: 8:00 AM EST
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.
