Junior Achievement of Chicago (JA) is proud to announce a generous $10,000 grant awarded by Marsh & McLennan Companies (MMC). This grant supports MMC’s volunteerism with JA and brought the JA programs to over 750 students in the City of Chicago.

In November 2016, 26 Mercer and NERA employees volunteered in 16 classrooms at St. Nicholas Tolentine School in the West Lawn neighborhood. This past May, 37 March, Mercer, NERA, and Oliver Wyman employees volunteered in 18 classrooms at Volta Elementary School in the Albany Park neighborhood.

“We are grateful for MMC’s involvement in JA, including that of our board member, Jim Fields of Oliver Wyman. Because of their support and volunteerism, our programs reach hundreds of additional JA students each year” says Laura Cebula, Associate Director of Communications and Development at JA.

Thank you again to MMC and all of their employee volunteers for empowering the future with JA!
