Giving Kids a Sense of Purpose

This note was sent from the President of Junior Achievement of Northeastern New York (Albany, NY) to their Board of Directors 

"Today just epitomized our JA mission and the Proof of Impact. I genuinely left inspired after National Grid hosted a tremendous Job Shadow to over 20 Freshman students from Watervliet HS.

This is what JA is all about... Giving Kids a Sense of Purpose. Our dedicated volunteers and passionate community leaders are truly demonstrating "mission in movement" and opening these kids' eyes to their boundless potential.

A very special thank you to Laurie Poltynski and JA Board member Renee Devine for making this great day possible for these kids.

We appreciate you more than you know."
