Champaign, Ill. (WCIA)

The Junior League of Champaign-Urbana develops and participates in projects, educational programs, conferences, and advocacy efforts in areas where needs are unmet and existing resources are minimal. JLCU has often been a front runner and a catalyst in addressing the emerging issues of the day. Projects begun by JLCU offer community partners administrative guidance, strategic planning, volunteer support, and financial resources. Once a project or program is successfully established, it is frequently turned over to the community partners for continued action in the community.

Immerse yourself and your family in the excitement of the holiday season!
