JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT HONORS 44 ORGANIZATIONS WITH U.S. PRESIDENT'S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD

Volunteers at these organizations provided students with critical mentoring and positive role models

Junior Achievement USA® (JA) announced today that it will honor 44 organizations with the 2017-2018 U.S. President's Volunteer Service Awards. The organizations receiving the awards provided Junior Achievement with significant volunteer resources during the 2017-2018 school year. The recipients will be recognized at an awards ceremony and, as part of Junior Achievement's Centennial Celebration, will participate in the ringing of the Closing Bell at the New York Stock Exchange as part of the JA Volunteer Summit, supported by American Express, on March 12, 2019 in New York, NY.

In 2003, President George W. Bush established the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers make in communities and to encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President's Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor individuals who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. In 2006, Junior Achievement became an official certifying organization for this award, which recognizes corporations with a U.S. presence that provide volunteers to teach JA programs anywhere in the world.

"Junior Achievement volunteers are important mentors for young people, bringing our programs to life. Each year, more than 245,000 JA volunteers share their experiences and skills with students while delivering our programs, teaching them how to manage their money, succeed in the workforce, or start a business that creates jobs and grows the economy," said Jack Kosakowski, President and CEO of Junior Achievement USA. "The recipients of the President's Volunteer Service Awards are leaders in this effort and critical to helping JA inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy."
