JA JobSpark 2021
More than 10,500 students virtually experienced over 400 activities, including pre-recorded videos, live sessions and resources for download. Industry Professionals form over 100 local businesses provided content for your students, encouraging them to consider all of the career pathways and jobs that are out there, the skills needed to have one of those jobs and perhaps helping to spark a new interest. We had nearly 300,000 views (clicks on activities) across all 8 clusters over the 2 days. Wow!
