Community Impact

Issue-Based Community Impact (IBCI)

In addition to training members to become civic leaders, Junior League of Greater Alton undertakes an Issue-Based Community Impact project every few years. These projects arise from detailed research on the needs of the Greater Alton region and unfold as multi-year plans to tackle the chosen issue.

Junior League Locker is our newest IBCI project, designed to address clothing insecurities in our region.
