Counseling & Advocacy
TO DONATE, VOLUNTEER OR LEARN MORE, PLEASE CONTACT US THROUGH OUR ORGANIZATIONAL WEBSITE: http://www.waukegantocollege.org/contact.php
The activities of a W2C counselor include meeting monthly with each family, discussing goals and progress towards these goals, advocating for the student in the school for changes such as taking more challenging courses, getting additional help in courses where the student may be struggling, or ensuring that Individual Education Plan (IEP) accommodations are being made. W2C counselors are in close contact with teachers and administrators in the Waukegan Public Schools. In addition, we work with families to get students enrolled in summer programs on college campuses.
Volunteer college counselors work with high school juniors and seniors individually and in small groups to help them understand the college application process and develop a list of colleges that may be of interest. These meetings typically include the student’s coach and the coach then works with the student on exploring these college options.
