JA JobSpark Volunteer Newsletter * March 2022
The 7th Annual JA JobSpark will be held in person at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on September 20 & September 21, 2022.
Thank you for your continued commitment to the 10,000+ students who will join us this September at JA JobSpark. Because of you, 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!
Back to In-Person!
Check out our 2019 JA JobSpark Highlights video for a glimpse of our last in-person event. We are so excited to be back in person and are looking forward to all our volunteers (you!) providing hands-on experiences and interacting with students to share your career experiences. The energy is incredible!
