Did you know that the Plainfield Middle School 8th graders are hosting a mini JA JobSpark this spring? They are excited to provide this mini hands-on career expo to the 5th graders at their school. JA JobSpark volunteers visited Plainfield Middle School to have more in-depth discussions with 8th grade students about career opportunities as they prepare to provide this mini hands-on career expo. Volunteers shared their insights, and students had the opportunity to ask questions about their jobs, and how to prepare for different careers, plan hands-on experiences, etc.
The 6th grade students also had a "Career Day" with guest speakers sharing information on careers, soft skills and transferable skills needed in the workplace, and how to explore various career paths. JA volunteers did a career mapping activity using our blended curriculum.
Thank you so much to our volunteers from Fuel Merchandise, Indianapolis EMS, Indiana Commission for Higher Education, Indiana Department of Workforce Development, Indiana Farm Bureau, Microsoft, OneAmerica, Roche Diagnostics, Salesforce & The Hagerman Group, who represented the 8 career clusters so well. Your time was so beneficial to these students.
