JA Journey-2-Jobs

What makes this experience different???

The JA Journey 2 Jobs events are similar to a career fair, but so much more: companies and organizations bring 2-4 staff, and hands-on activities to explain the many career paths available. The difference is what happens before and after the event.  The students are not just attending a one-time field trip.  JA Journey 2 Jobs students receive as many as 5 additional hours in the classroom, complete with student workbooks and teacher guides for the greatest impact!!  This content is developed at the national level to prepare the students for the experience and keep the momentum going when the event is over.

The 300-500 students come prepared with questions for the experts-our partners and exhibitors! We want to show them that there are jobs at every level of education, and in a wide variety of interests and industries.
