About Waukegan to College

Waukegan to College logo

We are creating a college-going culture within an at-risk population dealing with high poverty, low literacy, and low college attainment. With the help of volunteers, staff and the community, W2C puts families on a path to higher education and out of poverty.

W2C serves 135 students ranging from 5th grade to college, offering ongoing academic supports including

  • counseling
  • workshops
  • tutoring
  • mentoring
  • reading enrichment

In addition, Application Boot Camp, ACT preparation, and field trips to cultural and workplace venues are offered.

All programs serve first generation college-going students and their parents.

By starting the program with students just before they enter middle school, W2C establishes high academic expectations and a concrete sense that college, with hard work, is attainable.
