JA-OK Inspire 2022
JA Inspire is a coalition of educators and industry leaders, led by Junior Achievement of Oklahoma. At the center of our work is a powerful event that will be massive, measured both in square feet and impact.
• 8th – 12th grade students
• Virtually integrated into the students’ classroom or remote curriculum
• Interactive showcase of careers from across Oklahoma
• Career station volunteers will share career advice and engage students with interactive exhibits
JA Inspire offers students the opportunity to virtually learn about careers directly from industry representatives in time to begin planning for their high school course work and better prepare themselves for life after high school graduation.
The program culminates in an in-person career fair in both Tulsa and Oklahoma City, as well as a virtual fair that will be ongoing in the spring semester. There will also be an evening event for sponsors and educators the day before the student career fair.
February - May 2022
