For his service on our Board of Directors and his outstanding efforts as a JA volunteer … we are excited to announce JA Board Member Michael Correia of BankFive as our JA Supporter of the Week!
Mike is a long-time supporter of Junior Achievement and our mission to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. He is also a dedicated volunteer, having delivered JA’s financial literacy, career readiness, and entrepreneurship education programs to hundreds of local students.
In addition to volunteering in the classroom, Mike has volunteered for Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts’ largest annual student event, the JA Titan Business Challenge. Every year 200 high school students from across the region come together to participate in a dynamic learning experience, hear from some of the region’s top business and community leaders, and compete in teams to earn scholarship awards that can help make a higher education possible.
Mike has also supported Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts through participation in our fundraising events including the JA Strikes for Success bowling fundraiser. These events help keep everything we do 100% free for students and schools.
“Mike has been an outstanding supporter of Junior Achievement for a long time, and we’re very fortunate to have him serving on our Board. He has helped strengthen JA’s partnership with BankFive to advance financial literacy education across the region and has helped us increase the reach of JA’s free education programs. Mike is incredibly dedicated to preparing local students for success in school and in life, and we’re so very grateful for everything he does to support JA!” – Jeffrey Pelletier, Junior Achievement of Southern Massachusetts
With deep gratitude for his commitment to bringing free financial literacy education to students across our region, we are proud to honor Michael Correia as our JA Supporter of the Week!
