JA Jobspark Flyer

Featuring: JA JobSpark 2024

JA JobSpark is more than a career fair, it brings together the business community and local schools and is designed to help launch middle school students into their futures: high school, college, and careers beyond. (Grade 8)

When: Thursday, November 07, 2024
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.
