U.S. Bank has been honored by Junior Achievement USA ® (JA) with a Silver 2010-2011 U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Award. U.S. Bank is being recognized for providing more than 10,000 volunteer hours to JA to meet the criteria for this honor.
President George W. Bush established the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers make in communities and encourage more people to serve. The Council created the President’s Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans 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 also recognizes corporations with a U.S. presence that provide volunteers to teach JA programs anywhere in the world.
Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to empowering young people to own their economic success. As a thought leader and primary source for innovative work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy education, Junior Achievement inspires and prepares young people to succeed in a global economy.
“Junior Achievement volunteers play an important role in bringing Junior Achievement to life in our community. Volunteers share their personal and professional experience, helping young people to make a connection between what they are learning in the classroom and what they will need to succeed. Volunteers support students, their local communities and America’s economic competitiveness,” said Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest President Gina Blayney. “The U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Award is an outstanding way to acknowledge JA's corporate partners and their employee-volunteers, who demonstrate community commitment and encourage others to make volunteering a priority.”“Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest is grateful to its partners and pleased to recognize their outstanding contribution to the welfare of local students and our community. Because of the work readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy education they’ve provided, many students have been empowered to own their economic success,” added Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest Board Member Jeff Kerr, president of the Institutional Trust and Custody division of U.S. Bank.

The award was presented to U.S. Bank at JA’s quarterly board of directors meeting recently.
