Each year, Junior Achievement of New Jersey (JANJ) recognizes the top 20 organizations that take a leadership role through volunteer engagement and make a major financial contribution to the JA mission in New Jersey.  

At JANJ’s State Board of Directors meeting held on February 19th,  Jeff Shuman on behalf of Quest Diagnostics was one of several JANJ Directors to be presented this top honor.

“Junior Achievement shares our commitment to creating a healthier world by ensuring children are empowered to pursue their dreams and lead financially healthy lives,” said Jeffrey Shuman, SVP & Chief Human Resources Officer, Quest Diagnostics and JANJ Board Director.  “Quest had the highest volunteers engagement with JA in 2015 and I’m honored to accept this award on their behalf.”

“Over the past several years that we have been partnering with Quest Diagnostics, thousands of children have experienced JA both in the classroom setting and through the JA BizTown® program.  It’s such an exceptional opportunity for young people to meet with and be mentored by adult role models in STEM fields. We are so grateful to Quest Diagnostics for their unwavering support,” explains Catherine Milone, President, JANJ.

JANJ’s mission is to inspire and prepare young people in grades K-12 to succeed in a global economy through real world relationships with business, government, and education partners that can help them develop the employability and financial literacy skills needed to succeed in the 21st century. JA’s innovative hands-on curriculum – provided at no cost to schools, students, or their families – emphasizes real-world learning experiences, and inspires youth to achieve by connecting them with corporate and community role models committed to investing in their future.
