LEWISTON — Northeast Bank has donated $20,000 to support Junior Achievement of Maine.

Junior Achievement of Maine partners with local schools and businesses to provide financial education for all students, from elementary to high school. The donation will help support JA virtual programming throughout the state,  as well as several key programs. These include: the Titan Challenge, an online simulation for high school students to learn how to run a company; the Maine Business Hall of Fame South, which honors the state’s most influential leaders who have made an impact on Maine’s economy; and the JA Pathways program, which connects community members with volunteer opportunities to educate students on financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness.

Northeast Bank has contributed over $102,000 and more than 1,000 volunteer hours to JA since 2008.
