Junior Achievement of the Michigan Great Lakes is releasing a free video resource for teens to keep them inspired about their futures during this unprecedented time. The JA Career Speaker Series features Michigan business professionals sharing information on their careers in short, but impactful video formats. The series is located on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvJpvQKaYH8H7eULAcKwPcw.
The videos are searchable based on 16 career clusters, allowing students to focus on particular areas of interest. Or, students who might not have an idea of what they envision for their future can review many or all of the career clusters to learn more about what is available as a career in Michigan.
“We were looking at what we could do from a local perspective to keep inspiring our area students,” said Bill Coderre, President and CEO of JA of the Michigan Great Lakes. "As unsettling as this has been to us as adults, consider the impact this is having on thousands of young people who are at home. We are doing this so that our students can spend more time planning for and dreaming about tomorrow, and less time worrying about today.”
This series is part of JA’s 'Tomorrows Are More Important Than Ever' online resources being provided to students. To learn more about JA’s online resources, go to www.ja.org/Tomorrows.
