Econ Illinois Mission

Econ Illinois Mission

We believe that all children should be able to benefit fully from and contribute meaningfully to the economic system in which they live. It is the mission of Econ Illinois to help all children in Illinois become effective participants in the economy, enabling them to benefit themselves and society throughout their lives. As effective participants in the economy, all students should leave high school with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to become:

  • productive members of the work force, as employees or entrepreneurs
  • responsible citizens
  • knowledgeable consumers
  • prudent savers and investors
  • effective participants in the global economy
  • competent decision-makers throughout their lives
