Junior Achievement of Chicago presents JA Inspire Virtual

Please Join us from February 2, 2023 through the end of the school year! Platform will be available through June 2023.

JA Inspire Virtual is a coalition of educators and industry leaders, led by JA of Chicago. At the center of our work is a powerful virtual career exploration program that is massive, measured in student engagement and impact. We invite educators to register their middle and high school students for this program to explore future career options.

Educator Information:

Available at no cost to educators, or your students, JA Inspire Virtual is adaptable for in-class or remote learning! Students will be introduced to careers in the following six industry categories, otherwise known as career clusters: Manufacturing and STEM, Financial Services, Business Management, Education, Communications , and Law and Government. These categories are arranged into "halls" for the students to navigate through and visit different company booths. Students have the opportunity to visit as many booths as they would like!

This is a great opportunity for middle and high school students to explore many different types of careers. Your students will have the chance to visit virtual career booths, download information to learn more about careers they are interested in, and watch webinars on topics like leadership, diversity and inclusion, personal branding and more!

For more information about bringing JA Inspire Virtual to your class, check out our educator flyer or reach out to Alicia Fusco at

Booth Sponsor Information: 

Students will begin their exploration with mostly abstract notions and will end up focused and activated, with real insights on what industries interest them, what specific jobs are like, and what education is required to do them successfully. Not all students receive career mentorship at home. For businesses, this is a chance to build your future workforce. 

Each booth will have the opportunity to design and set up virtual interactive exhibits representing jobs at their company and ensure that exhibits interest and engage students—with as much “wow” factor as possible.  

Sponsorship opportunities are listed below. Sponsors will fund student participation as well as help provide videos, photos, and career information for your company. We also offer a no-cost option as well as a funding option for companies not interested in participating with a booth.  

Take a look at our sponsorship opportunity flyer if you would like to participate with a booth.
