Home Savings Charitable Foundation recently made the donation to Junior Achievement. JA volunteers teach young people in kindergarten through 12th grades about entrepreneurship. JAMV was formed in 1992 with the consolidation of JA of Trumbull County established in 1952, and JA of Youngstown Area established in 1953. JAMV coordinates programs in Mahoning, Trumbull, Columbiana and Ashtabula counties.
