As the largest franchise in the JA organization, Junior Achievement of Chicago has made an impact on more than 4 million lives in the Chicagoland area.
We continue to experience record breaking years of student outreach - last year, our economic education programs were delivered to over 400,000 students throughout the twelve Chicago-area counties! And we are on pace to reach even more students during the current school year!
In the past five years alone, Junior Achievement of Chicago has reached more than 1 million students, and our programs have grown over 175% in the past decade. This is due to the overwhelming success of the elementary and whole school programs and the continued partnerships with area companies and schools.
While we're doing great work in the Chicago area, JA of Chicago is only one of many JA offices around the globe. JA of Chicago is a member of JA Worldwide, and a part of a global organization that operates in over 100 countries and reaches over 8 million students annually.
