Please join us!

As an important stakeholder in meeting the needs of the children, youth and families of Lake County, we invite you to become an active (or even more active) member of the Lake County YES Coalition – Youth Empowerment for Success, formerly known as the Lake County After School Coalition (LCASC).

Founded in October, 2003 Lake County YES is a coalition of community leaders dedicated to increasing access to quality out of school time, parent information and youth development programs in Lake County.  Our efforts are based on each community's needs and resources and we work in collaboration with all aspects of family and community to benefit our youth.

The Coalition has successfully convened youth summits celebrating the success of Lake County student initiatives, worked in partnership with the County’s major businesses to bring information and resources to working parents, responded to crises around substance abuse with town hall meetings and legislative action, and convened elected officials, chiefs of police, park district directors, community organizations, social service providers, library directors, faith-based organizations, educators, and others in collaborative efforts around our shared mission.

We believe you share our concern and passion for children and youth and hope you act as soon as possible to formalize your commitment by joining the Lake County YES Coalition!

Membership entitles you and/or your organization to help lead the YES Coalition efforts and benefit from a countywide network of resources and experts in youth development.

Dues are nominal and will help offset expenses for communication and convenings.  Individual dues are $25.  Organization dues are $100 (covers 6 individuals).  Sponsorships are welcome and will be recognized in promotional materials.

Signing up is easy.  Please follow this link: to the Nicasa donation page – Nicasa serves as our fiscal agent.

Thank you in advance and please invite others who care about Lake County Youth!
