U.S. Bank Presents Junior Achievement of South Central KY with $10,000 Grant



Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky recently received a $10,000 grant from U.S. Bank. The grant will help Junior Achievement fulfill its mission of empowering young people to succeed in a global economy by providing educational programs on financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work-readiness. Junior Achievement provides these programs to students at no cost to schools for K-12 students in the South Central Kentucky area.

“Junior Achievement is grateful for our ongoing partnership with U.S. Bank,” said Junior Achievement President Allie Sharp. “As a non-profit, we rely on local partners to help fund programs for students and would not be able to reach as many students as we do during the academic year without vital partners like U.S. Bank.”

Junior Achievement’s mission and educational programs align with U.S. Bank’s strategy to improve the educational and economic opportunities for local youth. Junior Achievement stresses the importance of life skills, a commitment to staying in school, and financial preparation for the future.
