Last year, volunteers in Suburban Cook County reached 2,319 classrooms and 50,935 students.   This year, we have a goal of reaching 2,950 classrooms and 56,719 students! We’ve been able to continually expand our program every year thanks largely in part to generous corporate partners who support Junior Achievement of Chicago – Suburban Cook County.
