LEWISTON — Northeast Bank donated $15,000 to Junior Achievement of Maine to help support its virtual programming throughout the state as well as several key programs.

Junior Achievement of Maine partners with local schools and businesses to provide financial education for all students, from elementary to high school. Through a wide array of programs, including JA in a Day and the Titan Challenge, communities can come together to better prepare younger generations for a financially stable future.
