Dangers of Diesel Pollution

They are a non-profit environmental advocacy group that promotes strategic advocacy and business deal making which involves proposing solutions when we oppose threats to the Midwest environment. One of those threats is diesel pollution that is plaguing our air. This summer, we are working on a diesel pollution and air quality monitoring project for the city of Chicago, that plans to change an ordinance that calls for the reduction of diesel pollution in our city.

Career Vision

 Georgia Koch []   630.469.6270

Career Vision is the not for profit division of the Ball Foundation. They provide programs and aptitude testing, to help folks find the best educational and career paths that will allow them to develop their full potential.  A not for profit, Career Vision is nearly 30 years old, and the majority of new clients come from referrals from former clients. They have high school and college students, college graduates who can’t find their niche, and many adults who are either not doing well in their position or who have to ‘re-invent’ themselves due to downsizing.
