West Leyden HS to Host ILJC

At Illinois Jump$tart Coalition we acknowledge the nation’s financial future rests in the hands of generations to come. That is why we are delighted to announce our upcoming Spring event in partnership with Junior Achievement of Chicago and Fifth Third Bank and hosted by West Leyden High School in Northlake, IL. The event will be held in April and focuses on empowering students to improve their financial capabilities.  Guest speakers will share their insights with select WLHS juniors and seniors, followed by hands-on learning aboard  Fifth Third Bank’s Financial Empowerment Mobile.  Staff on the “eBUS” will assist these students in understanding credit reports, identity theft, budgeting and saving, as well as how to pay for college.

To bring it full circle, at the end of the day WLHS will be inviting parents and community members to participate on the eBUS. Check back for more information on community participation opportunities.


Thanks to all of the sponsors, guests and volunteers who made our 2016 Holiday Benefit Luncheon a big success!
