Give yourself a pat on the back. The central Illinois community successfully completed yet another record-breaking year! Last school year, 17,937 students were impacted in 835 classrooms throughout 8 counties. The growing number of JA graduates in our region who are now empowered with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful is only possible because of you and the ways you support our mission. While this has been a milestone year, we know there is plenty of work ahead of us as students step back into the classroom this fall. If you haven't volunteered with Junior Achievement before, or have spent some time away, this is your chance to help impact more students than ever as a classroom volunteer. If you're wondering whether volunteering with JA is for you, we would love to connect and show you why so many come back to volunteer year after year.
