DULUTH, GA – Tuesday, March 10, was a memorable day for Georgia United, as the credit union was named a Junior Achievement® (JA) 100 Club member for the fourth consecutive year.

The JA 100 Club recognizes organizations that have 100 volunteers participate during the academic calendar year. JA partners with 200+ organizations with roughly 20 meeting the 100 Club standards.

As of March, 106 Georgia United team members have volunteered at JA Centers, with a total number of volunteers projected to surpass 125 for the 2019-2020 academic calendar year.

Georgia United is a longstanding partner and sponsor of Junior Achievement in Georgia, with focus in the Gwinnett, Atlanta, North Georgia and upcoming Dalton areas.
