Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Junior Achievement USA is pleased to announce that it will honor 69 organizations across the United States with the U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Award for their support during the 2022-23 school year. Seven companies earned Gold Status, meaning their employees donated 10,000 hours or more to teach Junior Achievement financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and career readiness classes across the country. Twelve businesses are honored with Silver Status because their employees spent more than 5,000 hours as JA volunteers. Bronze status was achieved by 51 companies whose employees donated 1,500 hours or more to teach JA life lessons.

“Community volunteers are the reason JA programs have such an impact on Wisconsin students,” said Julie Granger, President of Junior Achievement of Wisconsin. “By serving as role models and connecting students with businesses in their own communities, JA volunteers open the world to students, helping them make smart academic and economic choices and pursue their dreams.” 

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 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.
