JA Career Bound is an 8-month cutting-edge, skills-building leadership program where select high school sophomore and junior students learn the skills necessary to succeed in today’s workforce.
Engaging FutureLeaders Leaders
After an opening retreat, students meet once a month for program days focused on specific industries.
Students visit some of South Florida’s premier businesses to learn firsthand about the career opportunities and what companies are looking for in future employees. Students learn from top executives who share their journeys to success.
We use interactive JA curriculum to teach key work skills, including communication, critical thinking, goal setting, interviewing, personal branding, problem-solving, public speaking, resume building and teamwork.
At the end of the year, students will have the opportunity to put their skills into action by participating in various paid internships with job shadowing.
