Dear D187,

Steans Foundation and School District 187 are excited to announce the release of a new video that highlights the great work that has come out of the relationship between Lake County Workforce Development and District 187 over the past few years, with a specific focus on the work-study program that has been established at North Chicago Community High School.

The video features interviews with D187 teachers and the Deputy Superintendent, who share their stories about how the work-study program has positively impacted the lives of the D187 community and created opportunities for students beyond high school. The video also highlights the program's benefits for students, D187 staff, and partners, including:

  • In-class workshops & Instruction
  • In-school career fairs & exploration events
  • Employer site tours and job shadowing
