Volunteer with JA Career Success Workshop

Help Prepare Students for the Future and Set Them Up for Success!

JA Career Success Workshop is a statewide initiative that connects high schools, higher education, and the business community in an effort to close the employability skills gap and prepare NJ students for success after graduation.
