It is supported by the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce!

“Thanks to groups like KidsMatter, Naperville is helping to connect students with potential employers for insight and experience. Last year alone over 1550 young people participated in the KidsMatter Job Fair and received first hand access to nearly 70 companies. This valuable interaction could not be more timely as we (the Chamber) focuses on Workforce Development. The Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce supports the work KidsMatter does and encourages its members and community to become active in the 2017 Job Fair.”
