JA Virtual Inspire is Junior Achievement’s capstone career exploration program for 7th - 12th grade students brought to life by community employers.

For schools and students, JA Virtual Inspire 2021 features a mega online career event filled with dozens of local business exhibits providing downloadable career information and exhibitor videos - at no cost and adaptable for in-class or remote learning!

For businesses, this is a chance to build your future workforce! Students begin their career exploration with mostly abstract notions. By talking with business professionals in their community, their journey becomes more focused and activated, with real insights on what industries interest them, what specific jobs are like, and what education is required to do them successfully.

* Interactive career exhibits
