We help students and their parents navigate the path to college/career.
Students who graduate with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to be successful in postsecondary education and/or a career 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.
250 middle and high school students learned about potential careers, visited workplaces and colleges, and prepared for the future through our Stay in School Program.
