3DE schools

3DE by Junior Achievement is dedicated to re-engineering high school education nationwide and is coming to Hillsborough and Pinellas counties for the 2020 school year. Local, state and national partnerships are available to become a part of this high school model which breaks through traditional barriers and redesigns the framework of education from the inside out.

JA Career Expo (Pinellas County based)

JA Inspire Career Expo is a career-based event filled with learning experiences that are designed to align with what the companies will need from its future employees. Students participate in hands-on activities, often using actual equipment or tools used on a job. We are looking for industry sponsors who will help transform students’ abstract ideas about work into tangible ambitions and plans, and to build their soft skills. There are 3 separate dates with 2 shifts per date. Each group will serve approximately 400 students.

Join us in this mission to empower the future. We depend on businesses and organizations to make our programs possible.
