April is JA Month in Kentucky!

We are so proud to announce that April 2017 has been declared Junior Achievement Month in Kentucky. In honor of all Kentucky Junior Achievement regional offices (Louisville, Lexington, Bowling Green, Owensboro) being recognized with the highest national honor, the JA USA 5-Star award, Governor Matt Bevin has proclaimed April 2017 to be Junior Achievement Month in the Commonwealth.

The purpose of the Star Award is to recognize staff and boards of JA Areas that meet Junior Achievement’s national standards in operational efficiency and through strong representation of the JA brand. Recipients must demonstrate growth in student impact and superior fiscal performance. Achievement against these criteria is certified through JA USA and audited financial statements.

Our regional offices, including the regional office in Cincinnati which serves northern Kentucky, bring JA programs to over 117,000 Kentucky students each year.

The proclamation states “It is important for the Commonwealth to recognize and support programs that increase financial literacy, strengthen the workforce, and inspire young people to become entrepreneurs.”

To celebrate Junior Achievement Month, the area offices have been sharing ways to get involved, and information about the life changing impact JA programs have had on students. To learn how you can get involved, call or visit JA of the Bluegrass!
