Junior Achievement of Central Indiana will Tuesday kick off its sixth annual JA JobSpark to connect 11,000 eighth-graders to high-demand industries. JA says the event will use an expanded custom-created interactive program including virtual experiences.
JA says the two-day event will feature 3D career pathway rooms and pre-recorded and live videos for students to “spark” interest in various careers. Students will learn about the skills and equipment needed in several industries. JA says students will hear from representatives of Eli Lilly and Co., Ed Martin Automotive, IU Health, OneAmerica, Republic Airways and more.
The two-day event will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. both days.
