What is JA JobSpark?
  • JA JobSpark is a hands-on career expo for area students in 8th grade. 
  • The event is meant to "spark" an interest in students and to 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 will explore first-hand careers in northern Indiana industries. 
Who is planning, leading, and funding this event? 
  • A coalition of northeast Indiana companies, educators, and organizations, led by Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana. 
  • Volunteers from companies throughout the area will be there to engage with students throughout the day. These companies also provide a registration fee and/or sponsorship to participate.
