(Moline, IL) – Junior Achievement of the Heartland is partnering with GROW Clinton to provide JA learning experiences to K-12th grade students. Thanks to this $7,500 donation from GROW Clinton JA curriculum will impact almost 1,200 students in the Camanche, Clinton, and Fulton communities during the 2022-2023 school year. These programs are centered on financial literacy and help students gain a strong foundation for healthy money management skills.

“Junior Achievement’s proven method of inspiring youth and preparing them for success fits hand-in-hand with the mission of Grow Clinton. We are excited to partner with JA of the Heartland to impact our young people’s view on the importance of critical life skills.
