In line with our goal of helping young people explore the many career pathways available to them, throughout the year, Juma organizes a variety of career exploratory activities focused on in-demand fields.
JumaEXPLORES – Career tours are an opportunity for youth to visit a local company, hear firsthand from professionals who work there, learn about possible career pathways and get guidance on the training and education needed to succeed in the field. Leading up to the Career tour, Juma works closely with corporate team to coordinate a schedule and content that is impactful for both youth as well as our corporate volunteers.
