JA Inspire

JA Inspire Virtual, formerly titled JA You’re Hired, is Junior Achievement’s virtual career development program for 6th-12th grade students that equips them with essential skills to successfully enter the workforce.

The only program of its kind in Arizona, JA Inspire is designed to offer high school students real world application of important life skills. Since its inception nine years ago, nearly 10,000 students have received these critical career-readiness lessons.

JA Inspire has two parts, beginning with a volunteer-led curriculum in the classroom designed to build critical career readiness skills such as interviewing techniques, resume writing, problem-solving, teamwork and interpersonal communications.

Then, the program culminates with the virtual JA Inspire 2021 event, featuring an online career fair filled with business exhibits providing downloadable career information and exhibitor videos. Students will have the chance to network with real-world professionals and compete in challenges and workshops centered around entrepreneurship, STEM exploration, and more.
