JA Inspire Experiences


For the fourth year, Junior Achievement, in partnership of more than 100 northeast Ohio businesses and organizations, is gearing up to launch our 2023-2024 JA Inspire Program to help 6-12th grade students connect their school choices now to building their future dream careers - right here in northeast Ohio!

A FREE resource for students and educators, JA Inspire includes:

  • Curriculum specially customized for middle or high school-aged learners;
  • JA Here to Career, featuring our career matching assessment and local and national information on jobs, employers and post-secondary education; and
  • JA Inspire, made possible by FirstEnergy, an in-person career fairs for high school students, held in Ashland, Richland, Stark and Wayne Counties

We strongly recommend encouraging student exploration through the in-class curriculum, guided and self-guided JA Here to Career interactive content, and in-person event attendance (high school students only).
