The Libertyville Junior Womans Foundation is proud to present, a fundraiser to benefit Waukegan to College (W2C). For more than 50 years, the Libertyville Junior Womans Club, of which Libertyville Junior Womans Foundation is part, has supported charitable and educational projects, both financially and through volunteer service. Our philanthropic efforts have benefited such organizations as PADS, LaCasa, the Lake County Haven, Equestrian Connection and Meals on Wheels. Our membership is comprised of women from various backgrounds and professions, all of whom share a commitment to improving our community and supporting its growth through volunteerism. Since 2009 Waukegan to College (W2C) has been serving the community by providing year-round college readiness service to students who start off shy and quiet but grow into mature successful young adults. The mission of W2C is to create brighter futures for students, families and the community by helping students prepare to enroll in and graduate from college. They help students learn to achieve academic success by serving as a students academic counselor/advisor. Students and their parent meet with the assigned counselor/advisor often as monthly to keep track with academic performance based on a college readiness curriculum. With the help of wonderful volunteers, donors and partners who really help make a difference they are able to offer a list of services including: college visits, workshop materials, 1:1 academic advising, interpreter/translation service, summer enrichment programs and tutoring coordination and supervision.
