Last year, volunteers in our Will and Kankakee County Division reached 1,234 classrooms and 23,844 students.   This year, we have a goal of reaching 1,387 classrooms and 25,945  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 – Will and Kankakee County Division.
