Strengthening Communities Through Schools

We envision communities in which race or zip code no longer predict educational outcomes, where neighbors collaborate to ensure that all children receive what they need to reach their fullest potential.

Invest in Equitable Education for all Children

Get Involved

Join us in the fight for educational equity, one community at a time.

The Week of Possibilities (WOP) is right around the corner! Since WOP started back in 2015, AbbVie volunteers have served 28,788 hours with NCCP. Past WOPs have transformed the North Chicago community in countless ways. From establishing an accessible, school-based health center at North Chicago Community High School to replacing hundreds of seats in the high school’s auditorium, and even creating the Green Bay Early Childhood Center for the smallest of North Chicago’s bright young learners—WOP is the time to go BIG. Soon we’ll be posting this year’s progress— stay tuned to catch a glimpse of the goodness!

When students work with volunteers from their community, they get to see the wonderful things that people from their neighborhood can do and be -- and what they can be one day, too! On Tuesdays, firefighters from the North Chicago Fire Department (NCFD) worked with 4th and 5th graders during our after-school program. From  homework help to reading, and playing games, these incredible volunteers shared their time with students, and showed just how much one can do to give back to their community! Thank you, NCFD!

A generous donor opened a whole new world to after school students when they donated several percussion instruments to us from Bach to School this year! NCCP used these instruments to pilot a new program for K-1 students. Students learned the history of percussion instruments, how to play them, and how to make their own! From rhythm sticks to tom-toms, students learned about all the beats and sounds they can make just by striking, scraping, or shaking these unique instruments! 🥁
