JA JobSpark Virtual
Featuring: JA JobSpark
JA JobSpark™ is Junior Achievement’s premier career readiness program for middle and high school students powered by our region’s employers.
Utilizing aspects of gamification, students explore eight different industry clusters and learn about careers from our region through live industry cluster demonstrations, live industry Q&A's, on-the-job videos, and downloadable career information. Students are encouraged to visit as many of the industry clusters of their choice as they would like based on the research they conducted during the curriculum.
After the event, educators lead students through a short debrief session to reflect on what they learned, explore goal setting, and develop initial career goals. Students have a better understanding of the courses they will need to take in high school, a track for post-secondary, and a clear career pathway that aligns with their interests. Students have 24/7 access to the JA JobSpark Virtual platform after the live virtual event. Recorded presentations and videos and live industry cluster sessions are added throughout the year for expanded 24/7 student access.
