Last year, our Northern Division reached 1,351 classrooms and 25,108 students and this year, we have a goal of reaching over 1,500 classrooms and 27,000 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 in Lake & McHenry County.
