CHICAGO, MARCH 3, 2022 — CIBC today announced it proudly accepted a Silver US President’s Volunteer Service Award for the 2020—2021 school year from Junior Achievement. This recognition was created by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation for individuals and organizations, and is presented to those who contribute a significant amount of time to volunteer service. This is the third time CIBC has been recognized by Junior Achievement for their volunteerism.
“We value our long-standing relationship with Junior Achievement,” said Beth Witczak, head of CIBC US Community Development. “We believe that financial literacy is fundamental to building a secure future, so it’s been an honor to provide financial education to the youth in our communities."
For over a decade, CIBC US professionals have partnered with Junior Achievement to provide sound financial skills to students of all ages through the bank’s volunteer program.
Junior Achievement held a virtual Volunteer Summit on Wednesday, March 2, to celebrate the achievements of volunteer partners, like CIBC, who continue to make an impact on the lives of students.
