Is Your Company or Organization Ready to Inspire Future Employees?

Junior Achievement of Central Florida wants to INSPIRE rising 8th graders throughout Central Florida and your expertise is needed!  JACF will proudly host three JA Inspire Career Exploration Fairs in 2020.  

JA Inspire continues to empower middle school students' year after year with the support and commitment for our Sponsors.  More than 12,000 middle school students will engage with JA Inspire companies to create connections that allow them to build an understanding of the cross-section of high-demand jobs available to them in the future, from skilled trades to highly technical STEM related careers and beyond. 

Why JA Inspire?  Not all students receive career mentorship at home.  JA Inspire offers these students the opportunity to learn about careers from caring mentors in time to plan their high school coursework.  For businesses, this is a chance to build your future workforce.  


Our next JA Inspire event will take place on January 23, 2020 at Osceola Heritage Park. As a sponsor at JA Inspire, you will receive dedicated Exhibitor space to create an interactive career station.  Representatives from your company/organization will share career and education advice to students who will visit throughout the day.  Your team will engage with students by sharing your equipment, technology and your insight as a professional within your industry.  Creativity is invited.  Inspiration is welcome!

To discuss sponsorship opportunities, contact Kristine Vorpagel at or by phone at 407-270-4962.
