Is Your Company or Organization Ready to Inspire Future Employees? We ARE!

Junior Achievement of Central Florida wants to INSPIRE rising 8th graders throughout Central Florida and your expertise is needed!  JACF, in our 4th year, will proudly host a virtual JA Inspire Career Exploration Fairs in 2021.  

JA Inspire empowers middle school students with the support and commitment of our Sponsors. During the 2020/2021 school year, more than 4,500 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 virtaul program for Osceola County will be late spring 2021.  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!

JA Inspire Virtual is a coalition of educators and industry leaders, led by Junior Achievement of Central Florida.  At the center of our work is a powerful, virtual career exploration event that will be massive, measured in student engagement and impact. Our 4th year of JA Inspire career  programming will continue to provide new hands-on, state- of-the-art interactive  learning.

Over 4,000 8th grade students

Formally integrated into school curriculum
