We help students and their parents navigate their path to graduation.
Students who successfully graduate from high school tend to earn more, are more engaged in their communities, and are more likely to raise children who also graduate.
Far too many students in our community are unaware of career options available to them and have very little exposure to professional role models essential for developing career interests.
United Way of Lake County brings successful professionals into local schools to demonstrate the value of staying in school and illustrate the direct connection between academics and future success.
530 middle and high school students learned about careers from local professionals during the 2015-2016 school year (Waukegan).
