Lake County United launches "Waukegan to College"

Lake County United researched, developed and launched Waukegan to College, an intensive family-focused college readiness program in 2009.  This fall the program has grown to 52 students from 30 families, with 10 students now in college.  With guidance from a 12 member planning team, we have completed a strategic plan for Waukegan to College and will begin recruiting a board of directors to oversee the program as it spins off into its own stand alone non-profit roughly one year from now.
