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.

Once a month, 2nd grade students in NCCP’s after school program are excited for their chance to learn alongside the “big kids”—  Lake Forest Country Day School volunteers. During visits, volunteers encourage younger students to explore topics ranging from science to culture and even current events! Last week was the last time this semester that LFCDS visited after-school, but we look forward to welcoming them back next school year for even more fun! Thank you, LFCDS!

This past weekend, seniors from North Chicago Community High School took their first steps into post-high-school possibilities as they walked across the graduation stage at Genesee Theatre. NCCP had the privilege of assisting with set-up, but the best part was getting to see the pride on students’ faces as their names were called and diplomas received! Congratulations to the class of 2024-- the future is bright! 🎓

This past weekend, middle school students participated in our Saturday program, which gave students a safe space to have fun during their Saturday afternoon! Students played soccer and basketball, did arts and crafts, and had a tasty lunch. Opportunities like the Saturday program give students a chance to form positive relationships with their peers and NCCP staff in a familiar and inclusive environment that everyone can enjoy!
