Junior Achievement helps inspire and prepare students for the real world by teaching them the skills that they need to be successful in this global economy through programs. JA focuses on 3 main areas of financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.  

JA Inspire Virtual is a Junior Achievement Virtual Career Exploration for 7th & 8th grade students brought to life by South Carolina's business industry on March 26th. We are looking for SC businesses(exhibitors) to virtually have a booth to expose 15,000 students to careers available to them at their business or in their industry.  

It is so important that we are highlighting as many jobs as we can to students across the state and not just jobs that require 4 year college. We do not want you to miss out on this opportunity! 

JA Inspire a Virtual Career Exploration is coming on March 26th! Participating students will be left with a better understanding of what they need to do now to pursue their career dreams of tomorrow. Do not miss out on this!

Exploration fueling work readiness for over 10,000 students across South Carolina! JA Inspire will be held on March 26! We have booths available - click the link below for more information or contact Susan Spencer at to reserve yours!
