JA JobSpark Celebration and 2021 Kick-Off!
We would like to thank all who joined us on January 28th for the JA JobSpark Celebration and 2021 Kick-Off! We had an incredible turnout for the presentation and the clusters are off to a great start after their planning breakout sessions.

Thank you for your continued commitment to the 10,000+ students who will join us this September to utilize our virtual platform. Because of you and your commitment to the JA JobSpark program, these students will experience career pathways for jobs in demand and the skills needed to have those jobs. Without the support of all the businesses, education and community leaders, JA JobSpark would not be possible!
Murrow & multiple Emmy award winning Investigative Reporter, Rafael Sánchez from WRTV-ABC, did an amazing job moderating our incredible panelists as they discussed the impact JA JobSpark makes on over 10,000+ students.
The morning concluding with some awesome breakout planning sessions for each of the 8 career clusters- they are already hard at work planning some amazing experiences for your students!
