JA JobSpark 2023: September 26 & 27
JA JobSpark is a two-day, hands- on career expo at the Indiana State Fairgrounds impacting over 11,000 Indianapolis eighth graders. The JA JobSpark initiative includes in-class curriculum and activities prior to and after attending the event. JA JobSpark is meant to “spark” an interest in students and get them excited for their future. Students will learn about skills needed for jobs that will be in-demand when they graduate by interacting with industry professionals and utilizing equipment that is used on those jobs daily. Students will 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 for what they find they are interested in.
