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 will be massive, measured both in square feet and impact. Much like JA’s deep-impact JA BizTown and JA Finance Park programs, all students will participate in classroom curriculum before and after the event. The capstone experience of JA Inspire is an interactive, hands-on, career exploration for 10,600 8th-9th grade students. The event will feature a showcase of careers at regional businesses, non-profits, government agencies and educational organizations. Exhibits will include 100 interactive career stations with 400 mentors who will share their career advice with students and will engage students with equipment, technology and the opportunity to “step into the shoes” of employees from all industries.
