JA JobSpark 2022

Event Completed!

When: Tuesday, October 25, 2022 - Wednesday, October 26, 2022
Where: Old National Events Plaza
Time: 9:00 AM CT
JA JobSpark is a Junior Achievement initiative which includes a two-day, hands-on career expo for 8th graders in southwest Indiana and southeast Illinois. The event 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, while utilizing equipment that is used for those jobs daily. After the event, 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 that aligns with their interests.
Students engage in hands-on, experiential activities and interact with local industry professionals from eight career clusters. The focus of JA JobSpark is to highlight the necessary skills and career pathways that will prepare students for the high demand jobs of the future.
