Multicultural Coalition of Will County

The purpose of the Multicultural Coalition of Will County is to serve as a community of trusted peers and support group for working through diversity-related problems and concerns within our own organizations and to develop meaningful connections across organizations to maximize the positive impact we can have on the community as a whole.

Meetings are held monthly at the Joliet Public Library on the last Thursday of the month from 6-8pm.

Multicultural Leadership Academy

The purpose of the Multicultural Leadership Academy is to bring together and train emerging leaders to meet the leadership challenges and opportunities that our diverse suburbs face in the nonprofit sector. Through the academy, they will form a strong network that can call upon each other to continue making Will County a great place for all to live.

Classes take place on Saturday mornings at Lewis University. More information is below.
