About JA Inspire
JA Inspire is a coalition of educators and industry leaders, led by Junior Achievement of Rhode Island. At the center of our work is a powerful Career Fair that will be massive, measured both in square feet and impact. All students will participate in classroom curriculum before and after the event, with the capstone experience designed as an interactive, hands-on, career exploration for 8th grade students. The event will feature a showcase of careers at local businesses, non-profits, government agencies and educational organizations. Exhibits will include interactive career stations with mentors who will share their career advice with students and will engage students with equipment, technology and the opportunity to “step into the shoes” of employees from all industries.
