The Greater Joliet Area YMCA is the recipient of a $10,000 grant courtesy of Midland States Bank. The gift will directly benefit the Y’s Teen Achievers Program, an academic-based program that guides local students on their path to graduating high school, attending college and achieving career goals.
Since 2005, the YMCA has offered the Teen Achievers Program to Joliet high school students. This past fall, the program expanded its services to Plainfield South High school. The growing program currently serves 107 area students in total.
