About Event

Welcome to JA Inspire Virtual! JA Inspire Virtual introduces South Central Kentucky high school juniors and seniors to local employers and higher education institutions through a virtual fair format. This event is one of the many ways Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky promotes work readiness to students. Our goal is to keep jobs in South Central Kentucky. JA Inspire is one way to ensure that our young people see that the workforce includes them, that they have a stake in the economy, and that they are vital to our future.
JA Inspire Virtual allows students to attend the fair and virtually interact with local businesses and higher learning institutions, despite their location, be it in the classroom or at home. Local businesses can build virtual "booths" where students will have access to company documents, videos and information to help guide them in their career choices. Students will have access to this platform for 90 days after the event, which could lead up to potential in-person job shadows, volunteer roles and interviews.
