Professional Development Workshops

In 2019, Junior Achievement of New Jersey was selected by the NJ Department of Education to serve as provider of financial literacy education to New Jersey public schools aligned to state standards and graduation requirements. The goal of the partnership is to further develop, implement, and administer financial literacy education programs, offer credit-earning professional development to educators, and provide model curriculum aligned to NJSLS 9 at no cost to school districts.

JA Inspire

JA Inspire Virtual Career Expo

Imagine being a middle or high school student walking into a virtual convention center, with a lobby, auditorium keynote speaker, and an exhibit hall filled with virtual exhibit booths representing NJ companies, across a variety of career industries. At the JA Virtual Inspire Career Expo, thousands of young people will “visit” booths to learn about companies, career opportunities and their pathways, culture, and more to see what it is like to be a part of your world of work. As they visit the booths, students will be able to “chat” with volunteers through a virtual chat functionality to hear your story, job, and learn about the skills you find to be important in your career. Students will walk away inspired and understanding the connection between what they are learning in school to their futures!

Virtual Volunteer Role: As students are “visiting” your company booth, they will be prepared and encouraged to ask virtual volunteers questions about their careers through the digital platform’s chat box. Volunteers will spend time answering questions, sharing about your organization, and the career opportunities available.

Fireside Chats

Fireside Chats are a flexible way for volunteers to talk about their careers & how they got to where they are (all levels & career backgrounds are welcome!). Videos can be done solo or with a JA Program Manager, who schedules “Fireside Chat” conversations for folks interested in being interviewed to create short, sweet & meaningful videos to inspire students from a distance. Videos are uploaded to JANJ’s YouTube video library showcasing employers & opportunities in NJ, and used to enhance JA programs.
