JA JobSpark Volunteer Newsletter * May 2021
SAVE THE DATE!
The 6th Annual JA JobSpark will be held virtually on September 21 & September 22, 2021.
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, 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!

JA JobSpark Long-Term Survey
In 2016 and 2017, Indianapolis eighth graders participated in the first and second years of JA JobSpark, a hands-on career expo educating students about future in-demand careers. These students that participated in 2016 and 2017 are now juniors and graduating seniors!!
 
We have reached out to the high schools in the districts that participated in the JA JobSpark initiative to help in tracking the long term impact that JA JobSpark may have had on students education and career decisions over the years and their post-secondary plans. 

We have received some amazing responses and are looking forward to sharing them all with you when we create our report. Stay tuned!
