On behalf of Junior Achievement and the 10,000+ eighth graders who attended our very first Virtual JA JobSpark this week, THANK YOU! Your participation as a cluster 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!

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!
