JA Inspire is a coalition of educators and industry leaders, led by Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore. At the center of our work is a powerful event that will be massive, measured in both square feet and impact.

  • Hands-on Career Exploration
  • Almost 3,000 8th Grade Students from 6 counties across the Eastern Shore
  • Eastern Shore Colleges/Universities, Trade Schools, and Apprenticeship Programs
  • Eastern Shore Companies representing local high-wage/high-demand careers who will share career advice and engage students with interactive exhibits

Why JA Inspire? Not all students receive career mentorship at home. JA Inspire offers 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 through experiential and hands-on learning.
