On behalf of Junior Achievement and the 10,500+ eighth graders who attended our 6th Annual JA JobSpark this past week, THANK YOU! Your participation as a volunteer made a difference in the lives of thousands of students. Because of the efforts of each of you, they learned about real-life jobs and careers, salary and educational requirements, what it’s like to work in a certain industry and most importantly… they saw a glimpse of their potential!

Government, Law & Public Services Cluster: Making a Living AND an Impact!

Initial Student Responses
Before exiting the virtual JA JobSpark platform, students were encouraged to complete the Win A Prize Survey so we could get a quick snapshot of their experience. We are excited to share the positive data from their responses, and great to see the equal amount of interest across all 8 industry clusters. We can't wait to share more information with you as we receive it!
JA JobSpark Emoji Card
In the past, students attending JA JobSpark had a passport to help hold them accountable to visit 5 out of the 8 clusters. This year, students submitted an emoji card detailing their favorite experiences throughout the day. We are in the process of looking through these submitted cards & we look forward to sharing the student feedback with you all soon!
