The Washington County Community Foundation has awarded Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana with a $2,500 grant to serve Washington County youth.  This grant has allowed for the growth of Junior Achievement programming in Washington County, as we have seen a 37% growth of students being served in the county with the programs. 

Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana’s programs teach financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. JA’s age-appropriate classroom and experiential programs begin at the elementary school level, teaching children how they can influence the world around them as individuals, workers and consumers. The learning continues through the middle and high school grades, as students prepare for the economic and workforce issues they will face in the future.

“JA has been thrilled to be able to grow the number of students we have reached through the support of Washington County Community Foundation, educators, volunteers, and other Southern Indiana supporters.  We have seen a resurgence of request of JA programming from our educator’s pre-pandemic, gifts like these help us be able to fill the need and our amazing volunteers” said JA President Jennifer Helgeson.
