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.
