JA Inspire Virtual is a re-imagined, virtual career exploration fair that allows California middle and high school students to explore the careers of the future and equip them with critical work readiness skills, ultimately preparing them for success.
The only program of its kind in Northern California, JA Inspire connects students to top industries and businesses via our on-demand virtual experience through three parts: (1) online, pre-event career assessment and preparatory lesson(s); (2) the virtual career experience; and (3) a post-event reflection and debrief. Combined, this program offers valuable context for students’ career and educational pathway planning.
Within the virtual experience, students attend webinars, explore local and national company career booths, download resources and view videos exploring different career pathways. There is also the opportunity to interact with industry experts from many different California businesses, in a safe, virtual learning experience that can be adapted for in-person, remote or synchronous/asynchronous learning.
About Junior Achievement of Northern California inspires and prepares young people to success in a global economy by becoming financially literate, workforce ready, and armed with an entrepreneurial mindset.
Students will have the chance to explore future career opportunities by visiting virtual career booths featuring different industries where they can watch videos, download career information into their virtual backpack, and utilize the Q&A option to ask questions. They can also access on-demand webinars from industry experts in a variety of career pathways.
