Why Waukegan to College (W2C)?

We believe that all students who have big dreams for their future and are willing to work hard should have a shot at college. We help families who are committed to creating brighter futures for their children by providing them with a unique variety of resources to help their children get on and stay on the path to college. Since our founding in 2009, we have grown sixfold!

What do we offer?

Weekly Tutoring

Volunteer tutors assist our students by developing study habits. Consistently working with the same tutor helps our students make learning fun.

Monthly Family Meetings

A student and their parent/guardian meet on a monthly basis with a trained adviser discussing academic performance, volunteer opportunities with a focus of personal development.

Monthly Workshops

Once a month we deliver a workshop to our students and parents, which includes field trips, college visits, financial literacy, personal development, team building , community service and preparing for college!
