Industry partners

With a goal to introduce Rhode Island's eighth grade students to our State's high-wage/high-demand industries, our industry partners play a key role in the JA Inspire program. Exhibits from our industry partners will include interactive career stations with mentors who will share their career advice and engage students with equipment and technology to give them the opportunity to “step into the shoes” of employees.
