What Is JA Inspire?


JA Inspire

October 23-25, 2019

Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center, South Wing


JA Inspire is a coalition of educators and industry leaders, led by Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana. At the center of our work is a powerful event that is massive, measured both in square feet and impact. This capstone experience is an interactive, hands-on, career exploration for 11,600 8th-9th grade students. Inspire showcases careers at regional businesses, non-profits, government, and educational organizations. With 93 interactive career stations and 400 mentors, students “step into the shoes” of employees from all industries.
