At a time when higher education has become more crucial than ever for securing a high quality job, it has become increasingly out-of-reach for most families. We must swiftly change course — Illinois’ economy will not grow unless we develop a workforce capable of meeting employers’ needs.
Young Invincibles is committed to debt-free college in Illinois, reversing harm from decades of disinvestment from higher education in our state. We envision a system where anyone can attend college and graduate employment-ready, regardless of background or financial situation.
