What is JA JobSpark?
  • JA JobSpark is a hands-on career expo for area students in grades 8-12.
  • 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 and performing activities used in those jobs daily.
  • Students will have a better understanding of the courses they would need to take in high school, a track for post-secondary education, and a clear career pathway based on their interests.
  • Students learn about the depth and breadth of great opportunity right here in our region.

Who is planning, leading, and funding this event?

  • A coalition of Southern Indiana companies, educators, and organizations, led by Junior Achievement of Southwestern Indiana and the Public Education Foundation of Evansville, Inc.
