A Community Thrives

JA Virtual Inspire is a coalition of educators and industry leaders with one goal in mind: empowering students to find a career that inspires them! This powerful, virtual one-day career exploration event is focused on connecting 7-12th graders with businesses, helping them take their first steps toward career goals.

Now through Oct. 16th, your support can make this event possible. Help us raise $6,000 in the next 4 weeks and we can be eligible to win up to $150,000 in grants! And for as little as $8, you can make an impact:

  • $8 helps 1 student learn about local jobs
  • $24 allows 3 students to connect their strengths with career goals
  • $72 means 9 students see potentials not barriers
  • $176 engages an entire class with future employers

Additionally, varying weekly "bonus" grants provide further opportunities for your donations to go farther!

  • From Sept. 21th - Sept. 28th, the organization with the most unique donors will receive $5,000.
  • From Sept. 28th - Oct. 5th, the highest fundraiser for this week ONLY will win $3,000.
  • From Oct. 5th - Oct. 12th, the organization with the most unique donors will receive $4,000.
  • From Oct. 12th - Oct. 16th, the highest fundraiser for this week ONLY will win $4,000.

**Contests run Monday at 12 PM EST through the following Monday at 11:59 AM EST, with the exception of the final week, which ends on Friday, Oct. 16th at 12 PM EST**

Thank you for donating and making empowered futures possible!
