Volunteer Spotlight | Junior Achievement of the Bluegrass


Junior Achievement worked with over 18,000 students in the Central Kentucky area in the 2019-20 school year. The business/education partnerships of JA are greatly enhanced by the volunteers who are willing to invest their time and resources on its behalf. At JA, we depend on our dedicated volunteers and appreciate their continued support. Our thanks to the following businesses who have given their employees time to volunteer in the classroom this year:
