Grant will help Junior Achievement of Central Illinois expand its reach within Greater Peoria schools
Junior Achievement of Central Illinois has big plans underway that will impact Peoria area schools, after receiving a $7,500 grant from the Community Foundation of Central Illinois.
Junior Achievement (JA) of Central Illinois has been around for 75 years. The organization sends trained community volunteers into schools around the area to educate K-12 students on three different pathways aimed at fostering students’ success now, and in the future in a global economy. These pathways include education on financial literacy, work and career readiness, and entrepreneurship.
