Ascentra Credit Union Foundation Donates $50,000 to Implement JA Programs Locally

Ascentra Credit Union and Junior Achievement Collaborate to Prepare Students for Success

Students in the Quad City metro area, Clinton and Muscatine will learn important entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness skills, thanks to a generous grant of $50,000 from Ascentra Credit Union Foundation to implement Junior Achievement (JA) programs.

This partnership will bring JA programming to students in kindergarten through 12th grade helping them learn important skills like creating a budget, becoming work-ready and developing a business plan. In addition, Ascentra Credit Union employees will continue to serve as JA classroom volunteers, as well as support other special events.  The $50,000 grant will be distributed over a four-year period with support continuing through 2018-2019.
