Officials say the money will help serve more than 10,000 students across Kentucky. Problem solving, critical thinking, and resume writing are some of what's covered in the program.
"42% of area employers rate the overall preparation of their high school students," said Dan Douglas, "for their entry level job, as deficient. So, we're really addressing a community need for these students to have critical work skills that employers are looking for."
The grant money will go to Junior Achievement programs across the commonwealth.
