Nov 16, 2021 - Nov 18, 2021

Using an interactive online platform, JA Inspire Virtual will connect over 10,000 middle and high school students to companies and industries across Maryland. The program fosters student interaction with industry professionals at every level, exposing students to high-demand careers in the region and the post-secondary education pathways needed to attain them.
