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.

This summer would not have been the same without our college interns! Over the past 3 months, a fearless cohort of five interns dove right into NCCP, helping with our after school program and lunchtime learning lessons, working hard during the Week of Possibilities, and assisting in summer school! When asked to reflect upon their time with NCCP, they noted that the most impactful parts of their experiences were learning about the North Chicago community, bringing joy to students, and committing to education equity. 

To Ann, Ethan, Grace, Lilly, and Rosie – thank you so much for all of your hard work, and best of luck as you return to college this fall!

Students ended summer summer on a high note, thanks to volunteers Jason, Jack, Trish, and a wonderful team of Libertyville High School basketball players! These superstar high schoolers led 2 days of soccer and basketball clinics. Students learned the fundamentals of soccer and basketball, scoring goals and shooting baskets with their classmates. In addition to new sports skills, students practiced teamwork, sportsmanship, and resilience. 

Thank you to our volunteers for adding a little more fun to the final week of summer school!
