February 11th, 2020 · Leave a Comment

Junior Achievement of North Florida is a winner in the Chick-fil-A Foundation’s 2020 True Inspiration Awards.

The nonprofit organization was named a regional finalist in September and asked the community to help them win a grant from the foundation by voting on Chick-fil-A’s mobile app. The votes have been counted and JA of North Florida was named as one of the 22 recipients of this year’s award.

JA of North Florida was one of five organizations that were in the running for the award in the Southeast region and received a $20,000 grant from the foundation. The program the grant will support is part of the JA Work and Career Readiness Pathway which is designed to help students acquire the skills and mindset needed to be financially capable and ready for the workforce. It will benefit students from low to moderate-income, Title 1 schools and those associated with partnering nonprofit organizations.

The True Inspiration Awards were established in 2015 to help nonprofit organizations that serve children and youth in the fields of education, youth homelessness and poverty, or economic empowerment. It honors Chick-fil-A Founder S. Truett Cathy who was dedicated to inspiring the unlimited potential in children. Each year, the Chick-fil-A Foundation chooses 22 community organizations to honor and celebrate with the True Inspiration Awards. JA of North Florida will be honored along with the other recipients at the Chick-fil-A Foundation’s annual event in May.
